The Art of Command

H. R. McMaster

University Press of Kentucky

Harold G. “Hal” Moore was the battalion commander who demonstrated extraordinary adaptability during the Battle of the Ia Drang Valley in Vietnam. Moore’s thorough preparation for command, along with his creative intellect, physical courage, and sheer resolve, were central to his successful leadership. Adaptable leaders understand the contingent and situational nature of leadership and know that an action that is effective in one situation may not necessarily bring success in another.
