Can you explain the phrase 'a soldier's soldier'?

I'd prefer a synonym, but any explanation helps.

    No synonym, but it means that probably a general or other officer in an army has the respect of the people in the lower ranks. They are able to relate to that office as he can to them.

    It's a soldier that other soldiers respect admire and want to emulate. A warrior or a spartan.

    A very soldiery soldier. The epitome of soldieriness.
