Summary
"In this groundbreaking examination of the symbolic strategies used to prepare troops for imminent combat, Keith Yellin offers an inter-disciplinary look into a mode of rhetorical discourse that has played a prominent role in warfare, history, and popular culture from antiquity to the present day. In Battle Exhortation he focuses on one of the most time-honored forms of motivational communication, the encouraging speech of military commanders, to offer a pragmatic and scholarly evaluation of how persuasion contributes to combat leadership."--Jacket
