Sorry not to be more helpful

Duty Honor Country
On War and Leadership by Owen Connelly is a pretty good book

It has parts of memoirs from:

Frederick the great
William Sherman
Stonewall Jackson
John Mosby
Lawrence of Arabia
de Gaulle
Eric von Mainstein
William Slim
"Vinegar Joe" Stilwell
Matthew Ridgway
Moshe Dayan
Vo Nguyen Giap
Harold Moore
Nicholas F. Vaux

There is definately a good range of leadership in this book. There are leaders from Germany WWII, Allies WWII, British, NVA, both sides of the civil war, Israel and the USA. I've thumbed thru the book and I am currently at Mosby. This book was worth the $14 I paid for it. You can get a used copy thru New it costs around $30

I've posted quotes from Sherman at

I think the best book ive read military related was Fallen Angels (not to be mistaken for Killer Angels) Fallen Angels is a Vietnam Based story, good book too..
another good one is Shadow Warriors as stated already but basically any Tom Clancy novel is some hardcore shit, no candy coated stuff, its the real deal
