 Leadership in Crisis: Blamey at War

General Blamey is a controversial figure in Australian military history. This presentation describes a consummate military leader at the top of his game fighting for his country in a time of deep crisis.

‘Never trust foreign generals with the Diggers’ was Blamey’s cast iron rule, which he learnt the hard way on the killing fields of World War I. As Commander-in-Chief of the Australian Military Forces in World War II, by applying this rule and through great leadership, he built up a winning world-class military system. He kept control of his forces and demanded his generals always ‘keep the casualties low’. As a result, the Diggers had remarkably low casualty rates while achieving spectacular results.

Don't miss this fascinating presentation by author Brent D Taylor.
