I think Lt. Speirs showed and operated with great leadership. When dealing with a subordinated that made a stupid decision that could jeopardizes the mission it is important to act properly and swiftly. He also show extreme unselfishness when ran through the German town to deliver a message to another platoon, and then ran back through the town back to his platoon. He showed that he was not going to ask his people to do something that he himself would not do in order to accomplish the important mission.
