Great Commanders Throught out history we have read and seen great commanders, who have achieved geat things in battle. They have been able to turn the tide to their advatage in situations were it seemed that all was lost.So wt are the qualities that make a great commander There are three sort of commanders 1 The first is the commander who plans in great detail.He plans to such an extent that each and every eventuality is taken care off. planing in great detail is all very nice but there is a draw back in such a commander and that is they tend to be some what fussy. A good example is the commanders of world war 1. 2. The second kind, is the commander who has instinctive grasp, chrisma, flare.eg Pattern. The drawback in such a commander is that he is very erratic. 3. The third kind is the very rear kind. The kind who has a combination of the first two. A very good example is admiral Nelson of royal navy.Nelson use to plan in great detail. He use to talk to his captains and plan to meet all eventualities. In all most all situations the fleet knew what to do as the plan had covered all eventualities. But at the same time Nelson had the chrisma and the moral courage to tear up plans in the heat pf the battle and go for any situation that presented it self It is this combination of the two which makes for not only a great Commander but a great leader.
