Victory Principles:  Leadership Lessons from D-Day

Learn from history. Colonel Leonard Kloeber, Jr. describes seven bedrock leadership principles illustrated by the historic events of June 6th 1944 when Allied forces landed on the Normandy coast of France to liberate Europe during World War II.

Colonel Kloeber recounts the story of one of the most complex military operations ever undertaken and then uses his extensive experience in both business and the military to illustrate seven essential leadership principles, the VICTORY PRINCIPLES.  Illustrated on the cover (Photo courtesy of the US National Archives), General Eisenhower, the Supreme Allied Commander, speaks with the paratroopers of the US 101st Airborne Division just before they jumped into Normandy, France in the early morning hours of June 6th 1944. Their assault began the D-Day invasion of Nazi occupied Europe and opened the long awaited Western Front against the German army during World War II. In VICTORY PRINCIPLES, Kloeber describes how the Allied commanders planned and executed one of the most successful military campaigns in history without the benefit of modern technology. He explains how leaders at every level overcame great obstacles under extreme circumstances to accomplish their mission and achieve success on the battlefield. Kloeber then uses his experience from a thirty year career in the military and over twenty-five years as a corporate executive to relate the lessons learned from military history to contemporary business and personal leadership.
