This book is an intellectual journey. It is based in the fundamental Middle-American values and opinions, good and bad, of the happy days of the fifties. These values and opinions are dragged kicking and screaming through a rich and varied set of experiences as a young man, amazingly, is nurtured and tolerated by a usually hidebound navy. The journey ends with summaries about Russia, US Military policy and strategy, and the prospects for the social and political turmoil in America.Once, at the Naval Academy, when we were setting up a leadership event for midshipmen to attend, one of the brightest officers I ever saw was excluded. ... Most Midshipmen are quite literate and can write good essays about almost anything.
