The Company Leader

From The Company Leader : Leadership Lessons from the Tactical Level of War

Doug Meyer is an Army Officer with over a decade of Active Duty service. He has experience, as a Commander and Staff Officer, deployed and in garrison. He has operated in the CENTCOM and PACOM AORs, and has served at the tactical, operational, and strategic levels.

"This is my third year putting together a “year in books” list that shares my own reading. It is equal parts accountability, vulnerability, and hope that others will do the same. By sharing what I’ve read, I am keeping myself accountable to broaden my perspective. After 2018, I noticed a lack of biographies and fiction. That same year, the #miltwitter community called me out, rightly so, for not reading enough minority authors. That accountability helped shape what I read in 2019 and 2020. What I read is a reflection of who I am, and there is something deeply personal in that. And, finally, I share this hoping it helps others much like the lists I see from across the community shape my future reading." - Doug Meyer
