Very short book, but very insightful for leader's of all ages. Recommended read for those you are mentoring.

For a short book, this was an excellent read.

After reading various biographies about Marshall, Eisenhower and Patton, I began to come across the name, Fox Conner, more and more. Other than knowing he was the Operations Officer for General Pershing in the AEF in WW1, just who exactly was this guy? It appeared he had major influences on some of the emerging generals of (pending) WW2.

I started my own research to learn more. Conner was turning out to be a well regarded person based on the limited available information. Over the years, I have kept my eye for a source book focusing on this man. This book finally fit the bill. I suspect that this book started as a scholarly research paper for the author at the Army Command and General Staff school or other military professional education course. Then evolved into this short book.

I wish there was more material on Conner, but more than one hundred and ten years after his West Point graduation, the author probably scoured most everything available. I found Fox Conner a much respected man and someone that should be treated as a noteworthy general for cadets in learning mode at United States Military Academy. I never heard of him during my 4 years at that institution. My loss. It is a relatively easy read and I hope future pending graduates will be required to read this book.

Nice work, Ed. If you find more source material and enhance this book or write another, I will be first in line to read same. ( )
