I mentioned Heinie Aderholt in the previous post. I just got done reading his biography. If you have any interest in the air component of low intensity warfare, the Air Commandos, or just unconventional leadership, you need to read the book.

A discussion I've been involved with a few times is leadership vs. management. What are the differences, when is one appropriate versus the other, etc. Brig. Gen. Aderholt had an interesting, succinct, and I feel quite correct view on the debate: "My definition of leadership versus management is that managers do things right, but leaders do the right thing, regardless."

Can't argue with that.
