Abstract:

An understanding of the operational military leadership process and the proper application of it are essential in the development of soldier leaders and in the advancement of the military as an institution. This study consists of an in-depth interview with Major General Thomas G. Rhame, Commander of the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley, Kansas, and the follow-on acceptance for publication of two leadership articles. The interview centered on General Rhames lessons learned as he completes two thirds of his command tour and, more importantly, as his division does final preparations for deployment to Operation Desert Storm. The interview, lasting over 5 hours and resulting in over 100 pages of comment and self critique, was done for the Military History Institute and is maintained there as a part of the Chief of Staff, US Army, annual Division Command Learned Program document.
