Abstract : Successful operational leadership is not always function of supportive or competent reporting seniors. Successfull operational leaders can prosper in less than ideal command structures. The cases of General P.H. Sheridan and General U. S. Grant provide excellent leadership models for study of operational commanders in "dysfunctional command relationships. Using current literature on operational leadership to help define critical traits of operational leaders, the successful generalship of Generals Sheridan and Grant are examined.
