Abstract:

There are many tools that are used to develop leaders in todays modern Army. Whether we are training Officers or NCOs, the key is that we receive the best possible training that will enable us to train, develop, and lead Soldiers. This is extremely important, as we need to be successful in leading Soldiers in peacetime as well as in war. In this paper, I will examine the leadership style of two historic leaders, George Washington and Braxton Bragg, their successes as well as their failures. I will compare the two leaders and demonstrate how future leaders can benefit from studying history and using it as an educational and possibly a training tool.
