The Military Reviewer: Battle Leadership – Captain Adolf Von Schell

Jan 15, J. Gibson Hartley rated it really liked it.

Bagtle Schell’s book implores that modern leaders look more closely at the psychological challenges of warfare and apply increasing efforts to duplicating the chaos of battle in the training ground. While Schnell’s book is brief and full of many anecdotes, his advice is worth heeding as commander over 80 years later.

No doubt it’s insights will continue to prove valuable on any battlefield of the future. Apr 28, Adrien rated it really liked it.
