Honor Held Dear by Alan Eschbach

What motivates people to follow the lead of another person—to sometimes suppress their own fears, desires, and needs and to adopt a leader’s vision as their own? It’s a question that anyone in, or who aspires to, a leadership position should ask.
In this uplifting and often humorous account, Captain Alan Eschbach, USN (Ret), reflects back on his life’s experiences, and how he used them to meld his own code of leadership, behavior, and ethics.
