"Eisenhower and the Art of Collaborative Leadership" examines the theory and practice of collaboration, and collaborative leadership, in the life and career of Dwight Eisenhower. It relates his collaborative style to his ideas about friendship, his Kansas upbringing and his family, his military training and career, and his particular practice of presidential leadership, which operated through teams and a deliberate, sophisticated system of bureaucratic consensus-building. "Eisenhower and the Art of Collaborative Leadership" elaborates an alternative interpretation of such leadership, describing Eisenhower not merely as a “hidden-hand” president, but also as a visible one at the head of a well-managed team. It is a concise portrait of one of America’s most important and talented leaders, and a case study in sound leadership.

In a constantly changing world threatened by ever increasing terrorist acts, American interests, both at home and abroad, require protection provided by great military leaders. In order to produce military leaders who can successfully meet the future challenges America faces, it is important to develop and refine them early and help them understand how to create and refine a successful leadership style. The process of developing leadership styles, however, is not easy and it requires a prodigious amount of determination, time, planning, training, mentoring, and refinement. One way to help develop leaders is to show them examples of previously successful leaders, leaders such as George C. Marshall and Dwight D. "Ike" Eisenhower. Marshall and Eisenhower were two talented and exceptional leaders and are great examples of American military leadership. Their leadership styles were indispensable during World War II, and it is important for leaders today to examine why their leadership styles were so successful.

From the author of The Audit of War comes “a valuable read for those interested in leadership” through the 19th and early 20th centuries (StrategyPage). Throughout history, there have been those who become leaders through effort, fate, violence, or simple luck. They are leaders of men, of armies, and of nations. Some strive for the best of humanity, while others spread death and destruction. But all change history. In this controversial study, Correlli Barnett examines the strengths and weaknesses of twenty wartime leaders in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He considers the extraordinary difficulties they faced, and analyses how they performed and what they achieved. Were they successful, or were they beaten down by the burden of their roles? His book focuses on men from different backgrounds, from three continents in conflicts ranging from the American Civil War to the Second World War. They include statesmen such as Abraham Lincoln, Adolf Hitler, and Winston Churchill; generals like Ulysses S. Grant, Douglas Haig, Erwin Rommel, Georgy Zhukov, and Dwight D. Eisenhower; and admirals like Isoroku Yamamoto and Bertram Ramsay. These leaders demonstrated fascinating contrasts of personal character, styles of leadership, and aptitude for command as they grappled with the daunting professional problems that confronted them. Here, the author demolishes hallowed reputations, rehabilitates the unjustly scapegoated, and shines an unfiltered light on those who have shaped our world.

The Supreme Commander of World War II and leader of the free world as the American president for much of the 1950s, Dwight D. Eisenhower was one of the twentieth century's most admired and effective leaders. From his early career in U.S. Army to commanding critical World War II battles and the demands of the Oval Office, this book draws lessons from Eisenhower's life to give the reader specific actions that can enhance their own leadership. While there are many books about Eisenhower, this book is unique in presenting leadership insights from his military and political careers, rather than just one or the other. Another difference is that some of the material presented has just recently become available, such as Eisenhower's role in promoting the development of spy satellites and new perspectives into his role in promoting civil rights. The book begins by describing the foundations of his character etched in his childhood and follows him to his college days at West Point. It narrates the pivotal points of his early military career and maps out the profound influence his commanding officers had on developing his nascent leadership abilities. He climbed through the ranks of the military culminating in the fateful responsibility placed on his shoulders in the days after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. As president, Eisenhower would end the Korean War, balance the federal budget three times, preside over the federal interstate system we use to this day, and sponsor an early civil rights bill. His entire life is a case study in how to be a successful leader, in business, politics or any endeavor.

Global tensions and threats such as terrorist acts continue to pressure America's effort to provide peace and stability to regions around the world. Consequently, military leaders have traditionally been called to protect American interests at home and abroad. Today's Army is faced with the important task of producing competent leaders who can successfully accomplish America's worldwide endeavor to combat the contemporary challenges it faces. Yet, the process of developing individuals into consummate leaders requires a great deal of time, planning, resourcing, and a collection of skilled cadre. Illustrating the meaningful development of victorious wartime leaders is one way to educate today's aspiring leaders. General Dwight D. Eisenhower and General George S. Patton Jr. demonstrated superb leadership in World War II. Their childhood upbringing, military education, Army assignments, as well as the mentoring they received during the interwar period essentially strengthened their development, making them triumphant leaders. Therefore, Eisenhower and Patton's leadership growth, coupled with their personal determination to become successful commanders in World War II, is an indispensable model and a valuable lesson for today's leaders.Eisenhower's role in World War II was truly unique. Never before had a military commander been asked to accomplish a task of such magnitude as the conquest of Western Europe with such disparate forces and with such little real authority. What is more, Eisenhower's prescribed endstate was not a negotiated peace, but the enemy's "unconditional surrender"--a term that served great rhetorical purposes, but was never defined in either military or political terms. No one prior to World War II had ever held joint command of ground, air, and naval forces. No American had ever directed the combined forces of allied nations. Contemporary coalition commands that were formed in the Pacific, Middle East, and Southwest Asia were much less complex. They were generally focused exclusively on either land or sea operations, and all were much smaller. Eisenhower's massive unified command of joint and multinational forces was unparalleled in the war by either the Allies or the Axis. It is highly doubtful that anyone other than Eisenhower could have achieved victory on the terms he did, sustaining Allied unity and resolve through four bitter campaigns, and building a level of cooperation and trust with the Soviets that allowed him to compel a simultaneous German surrender on both fronts. What is more, Eisenhower did what General George C. Marshall and Field Marshal Sir Alan Brooke, the principal candidates for his ultimate command, could not or would not have done-- establish himself as a true field commander who maintained real operational control of land and air combat forces at his headquarters.

Two unique studies examine leadership and judgment of Eisenhower and his fellow generals: A Comparative Analysis of the Military Leadership Styles of George C. Marshall and Eisenhower, and Can Judgment Be Developed: A Case Study of Three Proven Leaders (Patton, Eisenhower, Bradley). In a constantly changing world threatened by ever increasing terrorist acts, American interests both at home and abroad more frequently require protection provided by great military leaders. In order to produce military leaders who can successfully meet the challenges America faces, it is important to develop their leadership skills. The process of developing leadership skills, however, is not easy and it requires a prodigious amount of determination, time, planning, training, mentoring, and refinement. One way to help develop leaders is to show them examples of previously successful leaders, leaders such as George C. Marshall and Dwight D. "Ike" Eisenhower. Marshall and Eisenhower were two talented and exceptional leaders and are great examples of American military leadership. Their leadership styles were indispensable during World War II, and it is important for leaders today to examine why their leadership styles were so successful. A review of the development of Generals Patton, Eisenhower, and Bradley provides a biography outlining the commonalities in their growth. Subsequently, existing judgment development models are analyzed for use in this study. The development of the synthesized general is overlaid on the judgment development models. In addition to ascertaining that judgment can be developed, this thesis asserts that experience is paramount in the process. Further, only through understanding the environment in which a decision was made, repeated exposure to similar experiences, and appropriate feedback can an experience be appropriately stored and recalled later. Finally, this thesis projects a method to enhance judgment in both academic and organizational environments.

The centennial of Dwight D. Eisenhower's birth came amid a reappraisal of this American Hero's eight years in the White House. Among the many tributes to President Eisenhower's memory, perhaps the most significant was a Centennial Symposium held at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. This extraordinary gathering of former cabinet and staff, journalists and historians met for five days in October 1990 to examine anew the pivotal years of President Eisenhower's leadership. The group offers a unique view of the Eisenhower Presidency, much of it from an "inside" perspective. They vividly disclose how executive policy was shaped and political dilemmas were resolved. THE EISENHOWER LEGACY: Discussions of Presidential Leadership records the highlights of the exciting and sometimes surprising discussions that resulted from the symposium. Throughout their conversations, the participants reveal how President Eisenhower dealt with a wide range of crisis, including the U-2 affair, Senator Joseph McCarthy's hearings, and the confrontation of with Governor Orval Faubus of Arkansas over school desegregation. The many first-hand anecdotes in this volume are often humorous, but more importantly allow the reader an insightful look at President Eisenhower's personality. It is unlikely that such an outstanding and knowledgeable group can again assemble to explore the many facets of the Eisenhower presidency. THE EISENHOWER LEGACY will prove invaluable for any future study of our 34th president.

How Dwight D. Eisenhower led America through a transformational time—by a DC policy strategist, security expert and his granddaughter. Few people have made decisions as momentous as Eisenhower, nor has one person had to make such a varied range of them. From D-Day to Little Rock, from the Korean War to Cold War crises, from the Red Scare to the Missile Gap controversies, Ike was able to give our country eight years of peace and prosperity by relying on a core set of principles. These were informed by his heritage and upbringing, as well as his strong character and his personal discipline, but he also avoided making himself the center of things. He was a man of judgment, and steadying force. He sought national unity, by pursuing a course he called the "Middle Way" that tried to make winners on both sides of any issue. Ike was a strategic, not an operational leader, who relied on a rigorous pursuit of the facts for decision-making. His talent for envisioning a whole, especially in the context of the long game, and his ability to see causes and various consequences, explains his success as Allied Commander and as President. After making a decision, he made himself accountable for it, recognizing that personal responsibility is the bedrock of sound principles. Susan Eisenhower's How Ike Led shows us not just what a great American did, but why—and what we can learn from him today.

The United States Military, the ultimate Instrument of national resolve, is centered on servicemen and women. Without effective leadership these men and women are ill equipped to succeed in combat and are unjustly put in harm’s way. The commander at the operational level is the link between national policy and action. His actions, character and decisions are of historical importance. While this paper will not cover the full spectrum of operational leadership; the most important traits of operational leadership will be explored. Additionally, this paper will highlight recent failures in operational leadership and compare and contrast them with lessons learned from two diametrically opposed operational leaders of World War II, General Dwight Eisenhower and Field Marshall Erich von Manstein. Analysis will concentrate on the specific operations of the Normandy invasion and Kharkov. The analysis will not deconstruct the operations but rather center on the operational leadership traits each commander displayed and their importance to the operation. Finally the paper will show how the lessons of sixty-five years ago are applicable today and for the future.
