Overview

Robert E. Lee was a leader of extraordinary talents who inspired an out-gunned, out-manned army to legendary heights. The man who Teddy Roosevelt called "the very greatest of all the great captains that the English-speaking peoples have brought forth," lived a life that was a model for anyone who seeks to shoulder the profound responsibility of leading others. Robert E. Lee on Leadership is the first book to present Lee's story in a way that today's business leaders and managers can use to achieve executive success. Author H. W. Crocker III illustrates the general's character, vision, and indomitable spirit in a page-turning narrative that captures the essence of true leadership. This book includes chapters that apply Lee's executive acumen to the tough battlefield of today's marketplace.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
General Lee eluded the Union army for three years and cunningly thwarted his foe by applying successful leadership and military acumen, winning many battles but losing the war. However, his reputation and legacy remain intact, suggesting leadership principles that could successfully be applied today. In very readable prose, Crocker, an executive editor at Regency Publishing and author of articles in the National Review, American Spectator, and Human Events, reviews Lee's career not only in the military but as a farmer and college president (the school now known as Washington and Lee University). At the end of each chapter, he provides a section called "Lee's Lessons"--leadership principles based on Lee's Christian lifestyle, his education (at West Point), and his character. Thought-provoking ideas for today's present and future leaders; for business collections and larger public libraries.--Steven J. Mayover, Free Lib. of Philadelphia Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Robert E. Lee on Leadership is a great book! I have been a student on the subject of Robert E. Lee for years. I have developed my own insights on this quintessential American, however, H. W. Crocker III (Ed Goldman is not the author) provides insight that is not provided in many of the texts in my library pertaining to RE Lee. A must buy book.

A must read for 'corporate world' managers. Anyone who thinks they know how to manage people or run a business should read this book.

It might change the way you look at life! Robert E. Lee was not only a great man who almost accomplished the impossible but he was also the ultimate teacher on being a graceful leader who can win and loose with humility.
