7 Leadership Lessons of D-Day: Lessons from the Longest Day―June 6, 1944

We rated this book:


There are certain days that changed the course of history. Certain dates that are forever etched in the memories of generations. Certain moments that transcend the history books and imprint themselves on minds young and old alike as turning points for the entire human race. June 6, 1944 is one of those dates.

And John Antal believes there are still lessons to be learned from that important day. 7 Leadership Lessons of D-Day takes the reader deep into D-Day, exploring different theaters of battle and moments that helped make the invasion of Europe by allied forces a success. From the beaches to the towns of France, there are lessons to learn about what it means to lead, what it means to inspire, and what it means to give your all for your country, your fellow man, and the world.

Antal does dramatize part of each story, imagining specific dialogue and actions taken that are absent from the historical record, but honestly, those choices and that dramatic license only serve to make each story more engrossing, each soldier more human, each choice more harrowing, and each sacrifice more meaningful.

People like to talk about history coming alive…well, Antal manages that feat here.
