Abstract:

The subject of command leadership in the military has long been studied from the aspects of management and pure leadership. There have been many successful command leaders over the ages. This report takes an indepth look at the subject of command leadership as viewed by General Antoine Henri Jomini. General Jomini was a senior aide to both Napoleon and the Emperor of Russia. He was also a noted military historian who chronicled the Napoleonic campaigns. The study concludes military command leaders are made, not born, and a look at the traits of leadership as noted by the authors of military classics is still applicable to contemporary leaders.
