Tony Flitcraft: Leadership of the past

Tony Flitcraft

The anniversary of the invasion Europe in 1944, June 6, reminds me of an incident. General Eisenhower, commander of the invading forces, carried a press release in his pocket. In essence it read: “The failure of this operation is my responsibility, and mine alone.” It was never released.

It didn’t blame Hitler nor any one else.

That kind of leadership no longer seems to apply these days.
