In this preview we look at the life of our 41st President , George H.W. Bush and the leadership he brought to ending the Cold War. It was an extraordinary career and he was largely seen as one of the most qualified of all of our chief executives. Here we look back on all the great examples he set in the leadership lessons of his time in office.
This will be the first of three seasons that look at his single term in in office as he deals with the most far ranging number of foreign crisis that has faced any U.S. President, and how he managed them all successfully, from the text book example of how to fight a war with a clear mission, with clear objectives and a unified coalition of nations, to managing the fall of the other military and economic super power on the other side of the world without firing a single shot.
It is the high point of a generation of leadership that saw the United States ascend to the status of the singular Super Power on Earth in the 20th century, The American Century.
