- About the Book

Profiles in Leadership
from the Battlefields of Virginia

by Maj. Charles R. Bowery, Jr., U.S. Army

LEE & GRANT combines a riveting historical account of the Overland Campaign with a fascinating, eye-opening study in leadership -- as powerful and relevant today as it was on the battlefields of Virginia. Stripping away many of the myths and hyperbole, LEE & GRANT delivers a clear-headed account of their successes and failures, along with dozens of leadership lessons that managers and executives can put to use in any organization.

Lee and Grant approached challenges in a fundamentally similar way. They called on skills learned through a lifetime of intellectual and practical preparation, applied those skills through carefully selected subordinates, and drove their armies forward with indomitable will and persistence. Imagine an organization headed by someone who combines the best traits and skills of these two exceptional generals -- unstoppable!

"In Lee & Grant, Charles Bowery offers some timely, perceptive, and deftly presented observations on nineteenth century leadership and followership skills that apply equally well to managers, military and civilian, of our era. This well-researched and thought-provoking study is a model of its kind."
-- Edward G. Longacre

"Lee & Grant offers a judicious and compelling command- level overview of the 1864 Overland Campaign, as well as thoughtful consideration of how an understanding of the events of over 140 years ago can be of value to businessmen, military officers, and anyone else who faces the challenge of leadership today. Highly recommended."
-- Ethan S. Rafuse, Professor of Military History,
U.S. Army Command and General Staff College,
and author of George Gordon Meade and the War in the East

"Charles Bowery's book is a remarkably interesting and useful analysis of the challenges Grant and Lee faced as leaders. Bowery identifies the qualities, skills, and methods that enabled them to succeed, and he skillfully translates their experiences into 'Leadership Lessons,' readily transferable to the modern business world."
-- Robert A. Doughty, U.S. Military Academy, West Point

Business is a Battlefield.
Learn from Two of America's Greatest Generals.

The Overland Campaign of 1864 brought together the Civil War's two greatest commanders, Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant, in the longest, hardest-fought, and most destructive military campaign ever waged on the North American continent. Locked in deadly combat, Lee and Grant plotted, maneuvered, and pushed ferociously to win control of each conflic the Battle of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, the North Anna, Cold Harbor and, ultimately, the nation.
