What seems to define "superb" in terms of leadership is hanging on through the failures until success arrives.

Perhaps only another soldier, and that the greatest, could truly gauge the fortitude it took to weather the military extremity of the bad years. At any rate, when Washington died and the word got to Europe, Napoleon himself was seen to bow his head. In the English Channel, the British fleet fired a salute of twenty guns.
