Praise

Praise for The Mission, the Men, and Me

“His thesis is that there aren’t that many different situations in life, and there aren’t that many different ways of dealing with them—have a few, simple principles, and, when in doubt, refer to them. He’s a stoic with a sense of humor, and I very much enjoyed his book.”—David Mamet, Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright, essayist, screenwriter, and film director

“Blaber presents his hard-won principles of leadership and illustrates them with intense personal stories and accounts of leadership amidst chaotic modern warfare. The leadership principles ring true and have a commonsense appeal. Also, the ‘peek behind the curtain’ look at Delta should please fans of special operations.”—Small Wars Journal

“Should be required reading for all flag-rank officers. Required, because it codifies in simple, accessible language the concepts that will allow us to adapt, overcome and prevail in 21st-century warfare, whether it be asymmetric in nature and unconventional in approach, or along the classical Land-War models. And required because Lt. Col. Blaber demonstrates through multiple empirical examples why flexibility, audacity, situational awareness and preparation are superior to rigid, formulaic doctrine-influenced operational planning.”—The Washington Times
