Description
Through a careful examination of primary and secondary sources, as well as his own acumen as a sharp officer, Cox uses Brett’s life to illuminate those factors that at first sped Brett through the ranks and then those variables that appeared to block his further advancement....As much as studies of commanders who grabbed the brass ring, this examination of George H. Brett adds insight into the makings of effective leadership and successful command.
