From the Publisher"Richard Miller has compiled a superb and unique collection of battle speeches in his work In Words and Deeds. These are inspiring words that capture the emotion and historical importance of powerful moments before and during battle. This outstanding book is a must-read for all that want to understand those moments in a way the dry reading of historical facts can never convey."--General Anthony C. Zinni, USMC (Ret.)
"Drawing upon the history of warfare from the earliest recorded conflicts to the present day, In Word and Deeds masterfully analyzes speech as an enhancer of military power. This book will serve as a valuable guide in the hands of anyone seeking to motivate a group for combat or any other daunting enterprise."--Mark Moyar, author of Triumph Forsaken: The Vietnam War, 1954-1965
"An essential component of leadership too often neglected. This book should be studied--and practiced--by all who command soldiers under stress."--Bing West, author of The Strongest Tribe: War, Politics, and the Endgame in Iraq
"Richard Miller's book In Words and Deeds captures the essence of historical and significant battle speeches and how those words inspired men into battle. In my military career, I had the opportunity to hear and follow great and eloquent communicators who had vision and clarity of mission. Men in battle are led through words and deeds of their higher and lower level commanders and leaders that instill discipline and focus. I commend Mr. Miller in this important literary work that clearly explains words and deeds experienced on our historical battlefields."--Major General Paul E. Vallely, USA (Ret.), host of "Stand Up America"
