Overview

Stand Your Ground: Building Honorable Leaders the West Point Way by Evan H. Offstein

West Point is the ideal laboratory for studying the dynamics of character, honor, and leadership. First, it operates a comprehensive honor education and enforcement program that has been subjected to rigorous Congressional scrutiny. Second, it builds all of its academic, athletic, and military programs on this bedrock of honor. Stand Your Ground offers unprecedented access to the process of leadership development at West Point, as well as practical insights applicable in any organization that strives to operate on the principle of integrity. By illuminating the principles by which West Point teaches leadership, Offstein not only provides a unique tour behind the scenes at this revered institution, but, more generally, imparts lessons of honor and character-building that can be adopted by any aspiring leader.
