Abstract : This document contains selected thoughts from the debriefings of fourteen Division Commanders who completed their tenure of command during the past two years. Some of these commanders led their divisions in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm and were able to provide additional warfighting insights. In all, this document represents a collection of their thoughts, compiled to stimulate thinking about what it takes to be an effective division commander. In addition, it provides insight to commanders below division-level about what division commanders think and how they think. It is not a 'cookbook' but the fruit of years of very successful service to our nation and to our Army.
