An Essay in Leadership, Powerful, Inspiring
The Admirals provides a narrative of the evolution of the United States Navy and the growth of the United States Naval Academy, one of the finest educational institutions in the world. Graduates of the early classes of Annapolis showed genius as engineers, strategists, leaders of men who showed diversity of character from the quiet to the boisterous and from the politically savvy to the epitome of self sacrifice beyond reproach. The book explores the inner workings of the US military, placing in bold relief service rivalry between army and navy, but with the beginning of a "jointness" that is vital for success as much today as during the times of World War II when the US faced a tremendous challenge. The book is historical and biographical comparable to any of the great classics.
The Admirals examines the characters in the title, exemplifying how from diversity comes strength.
Indeed, a book which was difficult to put down. Rarely does historical biography have such a strong pull, which puts The Admirals into a special category.
