This frustrated Haig, who was subordinate to the French general Robert Nivelle. From May he was given more authority and determined to defeat the Germans with a purely British offensive. The resulting Third Battle of Ypres from July to November 1917 (also called Passchendaele) saw further enormous British casualties that shocked the public back home. Passchendaele failed to reach Haig's objective - the Belgian coast - but nonetheless succeeded in weakening the Germans and helped prepare the way for their defeat in 1918. Supported by King George V, Haig bel... ... middle of paper ... ...n a campaign against the French at Verdun.
He enjoyed this very much, as any human being would do. Franklin created a bond like the United States and Canada, the bond is there but also not really made a big deal. Ben knew in the back of his mind and it eventually paid off. When the time was right and then he asked, they deployed their army and navy and saved the United States from falling back under the British rule. This shows one of the ways Ben Franklin was smarter than people ga... ... middle of paper ... ...s battles and win.

Cassius followed this idea exactly, thus proving that he is the best Machiavellian leader. Machiavelli’s idea of leadership is proven throughout Julius Caesar to be, when followed correctly, the most successful method of leading.
On January 16, 1944, General Dwight D. Eisenhower arrived in England to assume supreme command of the Allied expeditionary forces. He had not led troops to combat, but he possessed an extraordinary talent for planning and military diplomacy. According to Document C, Eisenhower faced a task of magnitude and hazard never previously attempted. He motivates his people with a few words of encouragement and truthfully let them know what is at stake and what lies upon their shoulders. He knew that weapon for weapon, tank for tank, save transport and artillery, the Germans outclassed his army, an army he would have to move up to 100 miles across the English Channel and storm a heavily fortified coastline as seen in Document H, a map of northern France and its coast bordering the English Channel.

He thinks he didn’t deserve the Silver Star Medal but the soldiers who died in the war deserved the attention, honour and respect that he got. “You’re a big hero; he said ‘A Silver Star hero.” This is the first reference to being a hero in the novel and here the reader wonders why Francis was awarded the medal.

Grant was given full control of the army in 1864, when he began his final campaign to end the war (Simpson). Grant had easily proven to Lincoln why he should earn the power to command. Other generals before him just did not make the cut, providing further contrast to Grant’s superior form of leadership. To name a few of the well-known generals that Grant had to surpass is an easy task. Major General George McClellan, a man of great persuasion, excelled greatly in pre-battle tasks.
MacArthur was appointed chief of staff of the US Army in 1930. Once again he was the youngest man to hold the office and over the next few years attempted to modernize America's army of 135,000 men. MacArthur developed right-wing political views and at one meeting argued that: "Pacifism and its bedfellow, Communism, are all about us. Day by day this cancer eats deeper into the body politic." In June 1932, MacArthur, controversially used tanks, four troops of cavalry with drawn sabers, and infantry with fixed bayonets, on the Bonus Army in Washington.
Field Marshall Sir Douglas Haig In this oral assessment I am going to talk about Field Marshall Sir Douglas Haig, Haig was a war leader in the First World War who led the army on few occasions. One of his most memorable battles was the battle of the Somme; in this battle the allies suffered over 2 million causalities and over 500,000 deaths. We may have won the battle and the war, but at a huge cost. In this assessment I am going to try arguing the case that Haig was a fool who cost the lives of too many British soldiers.

Self-confidence is the knowledge that you have the ability to achieve your goals. It is knowing that even if you fail at this attempt, you will learn from the mistakes, move forward and win in the end. People with confidence are those who develop the determination to keep keeping on, even in the face of great difficulties. U.S. President, Abraham Lincoln was a man of great self-confidence. He failed in politics more than he succeeded, however, when he did succeed it really mattered.
