Now in its second edition, Leadership Embodied is an instructive collection of short biographical essays focusing on Navy and Marine Corps personnel, who have demonstrated notable leadership characteristics. While leaders are present in every aspect of human undertaking, leadership in this work is illustrated through the most dramatic and demanding of all human undertakingsawar and the preparations for war. Wartime challenges are, because of the life and death nature of the affair, more monumental and exacting. All of these individuals have been selected because they dramatically shaped todayas institutions, practices, and customs within the naval services. The contributions of these individuals should be required reading for any student of leadership because they each demonstrate a particular lesson for midshipmen on their journey to becoming a navy or Marine Corps officer.David.
