Example text

A commander must be able to convey not only a common destiny, but also his tactical or strategic conception and directions. Troops who feel a mutual bond with their commander are more receptive to his orders if they believe that such directions will advance their common goal. 48 Stoic sacrifice is a trait rarely addressed by historians. In essence, stoic sacrifice is a willingness or ability to suppress the normal physical and emotional responses to pain, fatigue, tragedy, horror or fear. A leader’s personal example in the emotional and irrational battlefield environment can calm and inspire troops and enhances his personal honour as well.

The moral force of aggressiveness and risk gives one the ability to motivate men despite the human factors of fear and lack of confidence. Admiral John Paul Jones captured the essence of risk-taking in advice to the Russian Imperial Navy. 54 But risk cannot be foolhardy. The element of prudence must moderate a commander’s actions lest he over-commit to an ill-advised act, leading to a tragic conclusion. An aggressive commander should not only exhibit appropriate daring and a willingness to engage the enemy, an offensive spirit that expresses great vitality, energy and swiftness of decision and action, but also practise prudence such as intelligence gathering prior to committing to action.

The experience of campaigning and intense combat in the early years of the First Civil War, as each army matured, tended to produce a relatively high state of discipline. Skilled officers capable of maintaining control over their men rose to positions of authority; ill-behaved troops disappeared gradually through cashierment, desertion or execution. 30 The manner in which a leader administers discipline has a marked impact on all aspects of his effectiveness, particularly his ability to conduct dangerous operations or to motivate the men to carry out his orders.
