Abstract:

The life and work of British military strategist Basil Henry Liddell Hart were reviewed to determine his views on leadership. The goal was to ascertain what he considered effective leadership and if he held any views on how to develop leaders. In his discussion of a group of leaders he called Great Captains there are common elements that contributed to their success. Liddell Hart believed the study of the history of war and of the development of military science were crucial parts of military education and instrumental in leadership development.
