Until Antietam : the life and letters of Major General Israel B. Richardson, U.S. Army by Jack C Mason( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using newly discovered letters and extensive research in secondary materials, the author has written the first-ever biography of Union general Israel Bush Richardson. The author traces Richardson's growth as a soldier, through his experiences and the guidance of his superiors, and then as a leader whose style reflected the actions of the former commanders he respected. Richardson's military career was cut short just as high-ranking officials began to recognize his aggressive leadership. He was mortally wounded while leading his men at Antietam and died on November 3, 1862. This book brings to life a talented and fearless Civil War infantry leader
Lessons in leadership : my life in the US Army from World War II to Vietnam by John R Deane( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John R. Deane Jr. (1919-2013) was born with all the advantages a man needs to succeed in a career in the US Army, and he capitalized on his many opportunities in spectacular fashion. The son of one of George C. Marshall's closest assistants, Deane graduated from West Point with the first class of World War II and served in combat under the dynamic General Terry de la Mesa Allen Sr. After the war, he led a German espionage unit in operations against the Soviets, personally led the first foot patrol following the course of the Berlin Wall as it was being constructed, participated in the 1965 Dominican Republic intervention, and saw combat in Vietnam. In 1975, he received his fourth star and became commander of the US Army Materiel Development and Readiness Command. In Lessons in Leadership, this exceptional soldier not only discusses working with some of the Army's most influential and colorful leaders--including James M. Gavin, William E. DePuy, William Westmoreland, and Creighton Abrams Jr.--but also the many junior officers who helped him develop the leadership skills for which he became well known. Throughout, he offers eyewitness accounts of key Cold War-era events as well as wise observations concerning the leadership and management challenges facing the Department of Defense. Ably edited and annotated by Jack C. Mason, Deane's illuminating memoir also features interviews with several of Deane's contemporaries, whose comments and recollections are interspersed to provide depth and context to the narrative."--Provided by publisher
