Book Description

Nov. 15 2007

Command and leadership are very personal endeavours. The manner in which an individual commands others and exercises leadership speaks more to the character and personality of the individual in question than it does to the concept of command or leadership in and of themselves.

Intrepid Warriors takes an intimate look at a number of Canada's finest military commanders and leaders during the crucible of war. Collectively, the chapters in this volume offer invaluable insights into different command and leadership approaches, behaviours, and styles. They also reinforce the timeless truth that the character and presence of courageous leaders are critical to military outcomes, particularly during times of ambiguity, uncertainty, and chaos.

Command and leadership are very personal endeavours. The manner in which an individual commands others and exercises leadership speaks more to the character and personality of the individual in question than it does to the concept of command or leadership in and of themselves.

They also reinforce the timeless truth that the character and presence of courageous leaders are critical to military outcomes, particularly during times of ambiguity, uncertainty, and chaos.



There is always much to learn for young servicemen and women in reading military history. Happily, this book is more than a text, and it can-and should-be read by anyone willing to spend a few hours reading good Canadian military history.

(J.L. Granatstein Legion Magazine)

Intrepid Warriors is a first-rate survey of character elements vital to military command as well as of heroic individuals.
