What makes a great general? Some may say perseverance, shrewdness, and keeping cool during a crisis. Some may say a professional military education. Either way, in its nearly 250-year history, America has produced some very good generals. Each was great in his own way, in the circumstances of his time and in the qualities that America needed.
“Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.”― William Shakespeare ―
