First question was tricky. I see being amongst your troops as one of the most important traits of a good leader, but if I'm new to the unit and about to lead a major assault, I'd want to personally over see the planning to make sure it isn't going to FUBAR'd.

The troops can have all the confidence in me in the world, but if the people that I do not yet have a feel for but delegated the planning to screw it up, the mission is going to be a disaster.

OK...Patton! :roll:

Which is why you have a PLT SGT, Squad Leaders, and Team Leaders, and why you need to ensure that they are properly trained and supervised. The troops do well those thing the Boss checks. Having said that, a superb leader's troops take care of things when there's nobody around watching.

George S. Patton

Biography:
Born in San Gabriel, California, Patton was a descendant of an old Virginia family. He attended West Point, and he placed fifth in the military pentathlon in the 1912 Olympics. He fought well in World War I, leading a tank brigade, and he became an advocate of this new weapon. He became a household name in World War II. In October 1942, Patton directed the amphibious landings near Casablanca and the North African campaign. He also commanded the U.S. Seventh Army in the Allied invasion of Sicily.

Leadership Attributes:
Patton was an innovative commander from the start. He learned how to use the tank – a new weapon – from the French and British during World War I. He considered it the weapon of the future before others appreciated its potential. He liked to lead from the front, and he first distinguished himself on the battlefield by leading a tank brigade in WWI. He was more of a warrior than diplomat. In an infamous incident that almost cost him his career, he verbally abused two sick soldiers, even slapping one. After the German surrender, he argued for political taboos: a combined Allied-German campaign against the Soviet Union and using ex-Nazi intelligence personnel. Personally, he was known for racy language and flamboyance.

William Tecumseh Sherman

Biography:
William Tecumseh Sherman was one of the most controversial and successful Union generals during the Civil War. He performed well at Shiloh, Vicksburg, and the siege of Chattanooga. He captured Atlanta in one of the Civil War's most decisive campaigns. He advocated the concept of "total war" — waging war not just on the enemy's forces but on the enemy's support network. In this, he was the first modern general. He demonstrated this in his famous "March to the Sea," where his troops cut a swath of destruction through Georgia.

Leadership Attributes:
Sherman was tenacious in battle, and served with Ulysses S Grant in his campaigns — including the siege of Vicksburg, where his tenacity payed off. Sherman led by initiative as much as by planning. During his "March to the Sea," he was cut off from supply lines and his troops lived off the land. Sherman was a soldier, not a diplomat. In fact, after the war, when his name was bandied about for a nomination, he said, "If nominated, I will not run; if elected, I will not serve."
