Leadership Excellence through Pain and Repetition

Battle Book © was founded by Army ROTC cadets at The University of Chicago with the goal of creating a personal guide to excel as a Leader and Follower at Advanced Camp. Using input from current and retired active duty Officers and NCOs, we came up with books for ourselves for 2017 and 2018 Cadet Summer Training. At summer training, our books were widely used by our peers during leadership rotations. We decided to improve our product and make it available to the public. Our goal in making Battle Book is simple: shape future leaders to focus on rigorous preparation and critical thinking in high stress environments.
