Lessons Learned: Army Leadership - From the School of Hard Knocks (Book) Lessons Learned: Battlefield Deception - From Alexander the Great to Norman Schwarzkopf (Book) Lessons Learned: Time Management for Success (Book)

No one said it would be easy, and it sure as heck isn’t. Leadership can be one of the most demanding roles you can fill in the Army. Its as much of an art as it is a science, and don’t count on anyone explaining it to you.

We created this guide to highlight some of the most difficult leadership challenges you’ll face, and provide easy-to-follow solutions and answers. The Q&A style approach to this book is taken directly from the most asked leadership questions we’ve received directly from Army Leaders. CSM (R) Mark Gerecht, shares 26 years of experience and doctrinal expertise to answer the most pressing questions for today’s Army Leaders.

Answers to 122 of the most asked and misunderstood leadership questions? Including:

  • How should I conduct corrective training? (the ins and out of corrective training)
  • Can you record a counseling session?
  • Can you order a Soldier to sign a counseling statement?
  • How do you tell your side of the story in a counseling session?
  • Should you refuse to sign a counseling statement?
  • Can a Soldier Be Required to Sign a Counseling Statement While on Medication?
  • How should you deal with Toxic Leadership?
  • Does the assessment portion of the counseling form have to be filled out for the counseling statement to be complete?
  • Can a leader order me to make coffee or go get their food?
  • Can I inspect a Soldier’s off post living quarters?
  • How Do I Correct a Soldier Who Has Poor Hygiene?
Leaders are ultimately charged with teaching Soldiers responsibility to accomplish the missions. We have all struggled with the “5 percent” who consistently don’t meet the standards. CSM(R) Gerecht shares his direct personal experiences and an extensive knowledge of leadership and training, making this a “must have” for those committed to getting the most out of their Soldiers and teaching them how to reach their full potential.

If you’ve ever felt like you don’t have enough time on your hands—this guide is for you.“

Force Structure, Tactics, and Modernization of the Russian Ground Forces

The mighty Soviet Army is no more. The feckless Russian Army that stumbled into Chechnya is no more. Today’s Russian Army is modern, better manned, better equipped and designed for maneuver combat under nuclear-threatened conditions. This is your source for the tactics, equipment, force structure and theoretical underpinnings of a major Eurasian power.

Here’s what the experts are saying:

“A superb baseline study for understanding how and why the modern Russian Army functions as it does.
Essential for specialist and generalist alike.”

—Colonel (Ret) David M. Glantz, foremost Western author on the Soviet Union in World War II and Editor of The Journal of Slavic Military Studies.

“Congratulations to Les Grau and Chuck Bartles on filling a gap which has yawned steadily wider since the end of the USSR. Their book addresses evolving Russian views on war, including the blurring of its nature and levels, and the consequent Russian approaches to the Ground Forces’ force structuring, manning, equipping, and tactics. Confidence is conferred on the validity of their arguments and conclusions by copious footnoting, mostly from an impressive array of primary sources. It is this firm grounding in Russian military writings, coupled with the authors’ understanding of war and the Russian way of thinking about it, that imparts such an authoritative tone to this impressive work.”

—Charles Dick, former Director of the Combat Studies Research Centre, Senior Fellow at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom, author of the 1991 British Army Field Manual, Volume 2, A Treatise on Soviet Operational Art and author of From Victory to Stalemate The Western Front, Summer 1944 and From Defeat to Victory, The Eastern Front, Summer 1944.

“Dr. Lester Grau’s and Chuck Bartles’ professional research on the Russian Armed Forces is widely read throughout the world and especially in Russia. Russia’s Armed Forces have changed much since the large-scale reforms of 2008, which brought the Russian Army to the level of the world’s other leading armies. The speed of reform combined with limited information about their core mechanisms represented a difficult challenge to the authors. They have done a great job and created a book which could be called an encyclopedia of the modern armed forces of Russia. They used their wisdom and talents to explore vital elements of the Russian military machine: the system of recruitment and training, structure of units of different levels, methods and tactics in defense and offence and even such little-known fields as the Arctic forces and the latest Russian combat robotics.”

—Dr. Vadim Kozyulin, Professor of Military Science and Project Director, Project on Asian Security, Emerging Technologies and Global Security Project PIR Center, Moscow.

“Probably the best book on the Russian Armed Forces published in North America during the past ten years.
A must read for all analysts and professionals following Russian affairs. A reliable account of the strong and weak aspects of the Russian Army. Provides the first look on what the Russian Ministry of Defense learned from best Western practices and then applied them on Russian soil.”

—Ruslan Pukhov, Director of the Moscow-based Centre for the Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST) and member of the Public Council of the Russian Federation Ministry of Defense. Author of Brothers Armed: Military Aspects of the Crisis in Ukraine, Russia’s New Army, and The Tanks of August.
