Overview

Does class rank really matter? Q: What do you call the person who's last in their class in medical or law school? A: Doctor or Lawyer. Q: And, what do you call the person who's last in their class at West Point, Annapolis or the U.S. Air Force Academy? A: Lieutenant or Ensign. Same Date of Rank salutes 17 men and three women grads at the top and bottom, representing the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. They range from the "goat" or last man in West Point's Class of 1942, who was the first man in his class promoted to Brigadier General, to a 1999 Annapolis All-American rugby player who has served three tours in Iraq in the Marine Corps. Read about combat leaders, admirals, astronauts, pilots, ship captains, business leaders, an historian, logistics expert, mayor, teacher and software guru. The book also provides class ranks of many famous academy grads from George Pickett and George Armstrong Custer (lasts) to Robert E. Lee and Douglas MacArthur (2nd and 1st) as well as Dwight Eisenhower, Jimmy Carter, John McCain, and Jim Webb plus athletes like Roger Staubach of the NFL and David Robinson of the NBA. And, it includes timely information about how to apply to each of the three academies, too.

The thoroughness of the research and the writing style made for a great read. I have recommended it to several friends who I know will like it. It was truly a great service to document the stories of these outstanding officers and to educate current and future officers to life at an academy and a military career. Steve Little
