Distilled wisdom 4 Dec. 2012
By Rpaul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is more practical wisdom to be found in these thirty-nine pages than will be found in tomes twenty times it's size. The three lectures were given by Lord Wavell, then an unknown General to the Cambridge University Combined Cadet Corps in the spring of 1939. The first, The Good General, deals with character of a commander. The second, The General and his Troops, deals with how a commander infuses his spirit in his men. This it the moral, emotional element of leadership, not mere management. The third, The Solider and the Statesman, is the most valuable and prescient. Lord Wavell recognizes that military and politicians do not speak the same "language". Their "take" on the world is vastly different. Unless both sides understand and actively seek to bridge the divide, disaster is likely.

Highly recommended, particularly for young officers still learning their profession.

Classic 11 April 2014
By John Sullivan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This slim reprint volume makes a classic in leadership and military thought readily available. A.P. Wavell was one of the most literate military minds ever. His insightful writing was read by military men throughout Europe prior to WWII.
