Franklin D Roosevelt as President of the United States of America held the highest leadership position in this country What set him apart from other leaders is that he held this office during the most trying times our country faced in this century He was elected president in 1933 during the Great Depression and remained in office for four consecutive terms until his death in 1945 one month before the end of World War II His leadership through these historical times was controversial While some saw greatness others saw deception In this writing I will look at how he led the individual military leaders which were his lieutenants and the leadership style and personality he demonstrated as Commander in Chief Roosevelt ran his presidency the way he saw fit He might of confided in others for their opinion but made his own decisions when the time came for one to be made He felt that he was the best man for every job and his decision was of more value than anothers even if an opposing opinion came from someone more experienced in a matter than he He displayed uncommon self-confidence in his words and actions This was not a power game to him but a reality at its most crucial moments The first American offensive in WW II against the Germans which was the decision to invade North Africa was made by Roosevelt against the wishes of his Chief of Staff General George C Marshall The first test in the great enterprise for which Marshalls army was being schooled would be conducted not as he wished it but as Roosevelt wished itPg 133 Neither man allowed instances as this to interfere with the respect each held for the other They were both far too professional and dedicated to victory for pettiness derived through differences of opinion An historical moment where these two great men became formidable allies came to be from a difference
