Abstract:

The purpose of this monograph is to examine the career of LTG Robert L. Bullard. Bullard served during a seminal period in United States history. Often overlooked as one of the nations more progressive and ambitious leaders, largely because of the time he served and the biases he held, Bullards memoirs and papers offer a valuable perspective on this era. Bullards experiences during his initial assignments as a junior officer, during the Philippine Insurrection, and during the Spanish-American War prepared him for his later career when he commanded at the most senior levels during World War I. A comprehensive examination of these experiences demonstrates Bullards candid understanding of culture and its significance as it relates to conflict, his views on military education and leadership preparedness, and his ability mental aptitude to see the operational environment during small and large conflicts. These attributes contributed to and shaped his operational approach to achieve strategic objectives throughout his distinguished professional life.
