Celebrating the bicentennial of the founding of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, a companion volume to the PBS-TV special traces West Point's continual role in and influence on American history, profiles some of its larger-than-life graduates, and examines its traditions, changing roles, and contributions.

Book News
Part patriotic coffee-table edition, and part institutional memoir, this history of West Point considers the influence of the school on American society, and vice versa. It traces the school's development as an educational institution, and as something of a leadership-factory. Both archival and contemporary photographs are featured in abundance. Buzz Aldren provides the foreword. Grant worked as executive producer for the corresponding PBS series; Lynch and Bailey are historians. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
