In On Grand Strategy, John Lewis Gaddis assesses grand strategic theory in practice from the ancient world through World War II and beyond. Full of vivid examples of leadership and strategic thinking, from the Persian king Xerxes to Churchill's and Roosevelt's WWII strategies, Gaddis brings a deep knowledge of history, insight, and wit to the rigorous study of leadership.
How do leaders make strategic decisions? What defines great leadership?
