JOHN PAUL JONES

Biography:
Born John Paul, he added the name of Jones when he killed the leader of a mutinous crew in 1772. Jones was apprenticed at the age of 12 to a Scottish merchant sailor, and later worked on a slave ship. After the killing incident, Jones came to the colonies and joined the navy when war broke out with Britain. He performed admirably, seizing valuable supplies from British merchant ships. His most famous battle was in 1779, when Jones engaged the British frigate Serapis off Flamborough Head, Yorkshire. The Serapis was a superior ship, more nimble and with more firepower than Jones' Bonhomme Richard. A ferocious gun battle took place. When the enemy called for surrender, Jones answered with the immortal words, "I have not yet begun to fight!"

Leadership Attributes:
During the American revolution, Jones' mission by its very nature required initiative and working without plan. He sailed in a small group in the Atlantic looking for British merchant ships. A natural adventurer, he preferred to be where the action was. Personally, Jones was outgoing and brave in battle.

Certainly an unexpected result

Napoleon Bonaparte!

Biography:
Napoleon Bonaparte was one of the greatest military geniuses of all time and a colossal political figure. Born in Corsica, he attended French military schools at Brienne and Paris. In his first famous campaign, he was given command of France’s army in Italy, and quickly defeated Sardinia and Austria. This was the beginning of his legend. He captured Malta from the British, defeated the Turks in Egypt, and defeated the Austrians at Marengo. He was named military dictator of France in 1799. After a string of further victories, he was finally defeated in Russia — by the Russian winter, which decimated his troops. He continued to have victories, but he was routed at Leipzig, and France was invaded. Forced to abdicate, he returned to battle later but was finally defeated at Waterloo by a combined British and Prussian force.

Leadership Attributes:
Napoleon was a brilliant planner. In fact, he set up an entirely new system for raising and training an army that revolutionized the field. He was not only a great general but a skillful diplomat, able to consolidate and extend power through treaties and political manipulation as well as on the battlefield. After defeating Sardinia and Austria in Italy, he made several gains through the use of treaties. He set up a friendly republican regime in Lombardy, a tactic he used on other occasions.

Well if you call getting dressed up by your mom as a little girl normal then I guess he wasn’t weird. Having to live your life trying to overcome that trauma could do two things to ya, make you a fag or make you a tough sumbitch. Sort of like the man named Sue.

So, hypothetically speaking of course, if a Mother was a weird bitch and did real strange shit to you like make you walk naked around the farm with an umbrella, hooked battary cables to your nut sack, and beat you with a riding crop all the while calling you Andrea...it makes you some.....tainted. Just hypothetically say.

(hummmmm) guess there are some things I should reflect on.....)

General George Patton
My apologies for not being able to post a link on here, this particular work PC is all fucked up, BUT, has anyone seen the NEW Patton video yet on YOUTUBE?

It's fucking great, the old Patton speech, but changed around for the GWOT, video games, lazyness, etc., it's fucking hilarious.

This is kinda wierd....I personnaly thought he got a bad rap for his performance in RVN. I think things would have gone entirely different if he hadn't had so many politicians tying his hands.

William C. Westmoreland!


Portrait: George Washington
National Archives



Biography:
Born on March 26, 1914 into a wealthy family of textile manufacturers, William Westmoreland led a life of leadership. He graduated from West Point with many awards, including the Pershing Award for leadership. He commanded artillery units in North Africa and Sicily in World War II. During the Korean War, Westmoreland commanded an airborne brigade, and later he commanded the 101st Airborne Division. He later became the youngest major general and the second youngest superintendent (after MacArthur) of West Point. Westmoreland is best known for commanding the war effort in Vietnam.

Leadership Attributes:
General Westmoreland was generally a careful strategist. In Vietnam, he followed a conservative strategy, advocating a war of attrition against the Viet Cong. Westmoreland normally allowed no operations by units smaller than the battalion, and he insisted on strong artillery support. Westmoreland was more a warrior than diplomat. He found it difficult to tread the fine line of public ambivalence to the Vietnam War. Personally, Westmoreland was brave in battle. During World War II, he often scouted ahead of the guns; while doing so in Sicily, his jeep was hit but he escaped injury.

Ulysses S Grant! motherfuckas :lol:

Biography:
Unsuccessful in civilian life, Ulysses S Grant was made for the battlefield. Grant was the military leader who defeated the Confederates and their innovative generals. After the war, he was elected President and oversaw Reconstruction in the South. He died of throat cancer — the result of a lifelong habit of cigar smoking — but completed his memoirs before his death in 1885.

Leadership Attributes:
Personally reserved, Grant was tenacious in battle. Once he set a course, he wanted to see it to its end, as in the siege of Vicksburg. He was one to seize the initiative as well. After several failed attempts to get to Vicksburg, Grant moved his army south to cross the Mississippi — during this time he was cut off from all communication and most supplies. The taking of the city on July 4, 1863, was a turning point in the war. Ulysses S Grant's nickname was "unconditional surrender" — and he trusted fighting more than diplomacy. But when opposing forces did surrender, he was usually magnanimous in their treatment.
