The Battle Against Blunders. No general ever sets out to be a failure. So, it’s a bit of a surprise to find so many of them who ended up that way. Especially because you normally have to work your way up through the ranks to get to the position where you can be a poor general. But one truth of military history is that it is one thing to take orders and carry them out. It’s another thing entirely to give orders. Here will examine just a few of those who gave less than successful orders during their service.  Please register for this class if you are interested in participating via in person only.
