CO's recommended reading list

On yesterday's Midrats we talked about Command at Sea with CDR E. A. Westfall, CDR, USCG, Commanding Officer of the USCGC ESCANABA (WMEC 907). CDR James H. Ware, Commanding Officer, VAQ-135, and CDR Michael Junge, USN, former Commanding Officer of the USS WHIDBEY ISLAND (LSD 41).

EagleOne asked each of them what books they would recommend for someone on the track to Command, or wanted to hone their mind for positions of authority.

A very interesting and eclectic mix. Ponder.

Of course, if you want to know who recommended what - you'll have to listen to Midrats.

You know... it's a bit esoteric.  Lord knows I may even have discovered this book recommended here originally.  But I don't think so.

A fascinating insight into decision-making... the kind of things those at command level sometimes overlook, or had trained out of them.
