    Default commanded loyalty

    Hi

    He commanded a great deal of loyalty from his friends.

    How to best rephrase this sentence?

    Maybe: His friends were very loyal to him.

    It appears to me to mean something like:

    (His character, actions, etc were such that) his friends were very loyal to him.
