In the Shadow of Greatness


“They were walking to class on 9/11 when the World Trade Center and Pentagon were attacked. These midshipmen graduated from the United States Naval Academy into a nation at war, the first class to do so since Vietnam. The men and women of the class of 2002 lost their youth to a decade of war and their innocence on battlefields in distant places. Each story provides a glimpse into the lives of modern-day military officers who were faced with unique challenges. Their stories bring to light the trials of war and reveal a world most don’t understand. Refreshingly candid, their narratives take readers on a journey from Annapolis to the far corners of the world to experience operations at sea, on the land, and in the skies.”

I was alerted to this book by one of its authors. All proceeds to to charity. It looks like a fascinating read from our country’s future leaders. Click here or on the banner to go to the website.
