Command Failures: Lessons Learned from Lloyd R. Fredendall. Army Magazine, March 2003

2003 ARMY HISTORICAL FOUNDATION DISTINGUISHED WRITING AWARD
MG Lloyd R. Fredendall

Regarding Steven L. Ossad's excellent article "Command Failures: Lessons Learned from Lloyd R. Fredendall," (March) I would suggest that it be made required reading for all current cadets and midshipmen at our service academies for what not to do. In addition, I think the human traits of backbiting, jealousies, smallmindedness and general politics found in all walks of life-not just soldiering-played a part in his career and still do today in others.
