There were very few stupid(lacking intelligence) generals leading any of the armies in the CW.
How ironic, since Charles Lee could be accused of all three flaws at Monmouth, and of divided loyalties because he seems to have given his captors way too much inside scoop on what Washington was up to.I just read 1776 by David McCullough, and on page 254, it quoted a letter from General Charles Lee, and the quote caught my attention.
Here is the text: "lament with you that fatal indecision of mind which in war is a much greater disqualification thatn stupidity or even want of person courage. Accident may put a decisive blunder in the right, but eternal defeat and miscarriage must attend the men of hte best parts if cursed with indecision."
So, what do members here feel is the biggest flaw in a leader - indecisiveness, stupidity or lack of personal courage?
