Colonel Ralph Puckett (U.S. Army Retired)
Words for Warriors: A Professional Soldier’s Notebook
Words for Warriors: A Professional Soldier’s Notebook is about leadership—leadership on the battlefield and in the garrison. Colonel Ralph Puckett, a Ranger legend, shares what he has learned in more than fifty-eight years of training, leading, teaching, and mentoring Warriors. This book addresses tactics, training, administration, special staff, public relations, self-development, and myriad other subjects that are the responsibilities of commanders. Much of this advice will be useful to business leaders as well.
The essays within are not limited to Colonel Puckett’s experience. They draw heavily upon the experiences of others to provide a broad discussion of practical courses of action for the many challenges that confront leaders. This invaluable resource presents ideas that will help commanders with many of the problems that are part of everyday military life. Words for Warriors helps fill the gap between what is taught in our service schools and lessons learned through experience.
