grace under pressure that their subordinates will risk their very lives
for them?

he explains the department’s unique strategies and how they can be

real-world stories to convey leadership imperatives. Illustrated by
harrowing real-life situations, the principles in First In, Last Out will help managers become more confident, coherent, and commanding.
