Abstract:

Follow Me II is the final collection of "Red" Newman's widely read and influential "Forward Edge" columns published in ARMY magazine over a twenty-year span. Red was virtually a legend in his own time. His leadership as a regimental commander on Red Beach during the October 1944 Leyte landings in the Philippines inspired the "Follow Me!" painting in the Army in Action poster series. Through his writings General Newman has had a major influence in the development of.

Generations of U.S. Army leaders. The articles in Follow Me II, written in Newman's pithy and often poignant style, are filled with nuggets of information of value to leaders and commanders ranging from two stripes to two stars. General Newman deals with leadership not as a theoretical construct but as a personal tool for motivating real people to accomplish everything from the "ash-and-trash" routines of garrison life to the seemingly impossible demands of combat.

Newman's writing conveys the knowledge and wisdom of a lifetime in the army, both in peacetime and at war, and his devotion to the service and the people who make it a human entity. Follow Me II is a rare combination of recollections, anecdotes, and incidents that provides important leadership lessons and serves as a window through which the reader can observe and appreciate the "Old Army."
