Read a great book called "The mask of Command" by John Keegan. It analyses Alex the Great, Wellington, Ulyses Grant and Hitler.
It particularly raises the idea of heroic and non heroic leadership, thir differences and merits and their effectiveness. Heroic was like Alexander, fighing at the front (and getting hurt) and non heroic was like Wellington commanding very effectively and attacking only as a rallying example.
You put alot of work into that list Spartan and will be a welcome addition to the history contingent of this site.
We sleep soundly in our beds at night because there are rough men ready to take violence to those who would hurt us. i want to be one of the rough men.
