People always ask – what is leadership and can it be taught? There are literally thousands of books on this topic, yet why do we still continue to ask this question?  Is it because there are so many combinations of experience, strategy and personal characteristics that enable people to succeed as a leader?  Is it because we can’t decide whether success is natural or nurtured?  Is it because it doesn’t matter whether a leader is charismatic or toxic?  Is it an area that is continually evolving?


We encourage research that reflects on the fundamental elements of military leadership, the process of leadership, types of leaders, the dynamic personal interactions between leader and followers, and the individual and organizational values that foster effective military leadership.


In particular, we are interested in: how role models, both positive and negative, can have an influential development experience on careers and how such leadership can make or break a team; the opportunity to learn lessons from managerial short comings that curtailed or caused operations to fail; and personal experiences of leading combat situations. 


This is the place to share your opinions on the latest techniques in military leadership.


We are currently building our list of titles to be published. If you are an existing author looking for a more personalized service, or perhaps a first time author looking for an experienced publisher, please contact us.

Important Announcement


The companies that we work with continue to plan their response to the Coronavirus.  We are very grateful that this planning has allowed us to continue with our business during this uniquely challenging time. 


Given that we do not operate from a central office, there has been no disruption to our working environment and we continue to work as usual on a number of exciting new projects for publication in 2020/21.  

The Ingram Content Group, both our printer and distributor, are fortunate to be able to ship out of a number of large facilities around the world and where one has to shut down, they will transfer orders to another.  Their market leading service has a unique role to play in their ability to support rapid, single copy order fulfilment to reduce book travel and handling.


Finally, many of our books are available in electronic format either via Ingram direct or via Amazon which will allow your education and business to continue uninterrupted.

As the British Prime Minister said recently, 'Tis the season to be jolly but also the season to be jolly careful'.


          Happy Holidays everyone
