Description
In 46 profiles of figures from ancient times to the present day, military historian Alex Axelrod examines the nature of decisiveness, and why the people who made history made their choices. He considers Cleopatra's decision to rescue Egypt; George Washington's decision to cross the Delaware and beat the British; Gandhi's decision to prevail against the British Empire without bloodshed; Harry Truman's decision to drop the A-bomb and end WWII; Rosa Parks's decision to sit in for civil rights; Boris Yeltsin's decision to embrace a new world order; and the passengers' decision on Flight 93 to take a stand against an armed terrorist.

"What he labels the Rubicon Factor, Axelrod explains, is a quality of leadership that enables an individual to define and make decisions bearing the highest stakes and then to act on those decisions.... An insightful collection of vignettes."Booklist
