Overview

The Spirit of West Point is an intimate, inside, through-the-years pictorial of the greatest military academy in the world, exploring how it has changed over the past two centuries, and how its essence-its "spirit"-has remained uniquely the same. Its graduates helped shape America and the world we live in today-legendary figures like Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, George Armstrong Custer, John J. Pershing, and George Patton, and modern luminaries like astronaut Buzz Aldrin and Jim Kimsey, founder and CEO of AOL. Chapters cover cadet life, academics, athletics, architecture, visiting dignitaries and celebrities, distinguished graduates, and monuments, captured in two hundred years of photographs, drawings, and maps, plus original art commissioned expressly for this book.
