Four-star General Wesley K. Clark became a major figure on the political scene when he was drafted by popular demand to run for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in 2003. But this was just one of many exceptional accomplishments of a long and extraordinary career. Here, for the first time, General Clark uses his unique life experience—from his difficult youth in segregated Arkansas where he was raised by his poor, widowed mother; through the horror of Vietnam where he was wounded; the post-war rebuilding of national security and the struggles surrounding the new world order after the Cold War—as a springboard to reveal his vision for America, at home and in the world. General Clark will address issues such as foreign policy, the economy, the environment, education and health care, family, faith, and the American dream. Rich with breathtaking battle scenes, poignant personal anecdote and eye-opening recommendations on the best way forward, General Clark's new book is a tour de force of gripping storytelling and inspiring vision.

A group of friends from the Irish section of the Bronx are graduating from college during a period of great political unrest. Communism was gaining support throughout the world, threatening the sovereignty of the United States. The lines of battle were being drawn, the Cold War was heating up, as the Soviet Union was stepping up its pressure on the United States in Wars of National Liberation; especially in Cuba and Vietnam. These native New Yorkers must make life-altering decisions; should they concentrate on starting their careers and finding love, or must they postpone personal aspirations in order to serve a greater purpose. These young men were part of an all but forgotten American culture that were willing to put themselves in harms way by answering the call to Duty, Honor, Country.

After graduating from West Point in 1892, Charles Pelot Summerall (1867--1955) launched a distinguished military career, fighting Filipino insurgents in 1899 and Boxers in China in 1900. His remarkable service included brigade, division, and corps commands in World War I; duty as chief of staff of the U.S. Army from 1926 to 1930; and presidency of the Citadel for twenty years, where he was instrumental in establishing the school's national reputation. Previously available only in the Citadel's archives, Summerall's memoir offers an eyewitness account of a formative period in U.S. Army history. Edited and annotated by Timothy K. Nenninger, the memoir documents critical moments in American military history and details Summerall's personal life, from his impoverished childhood in Florida to his retirement from the Citadel in 1953. From the perspective of both a soldier and a general, Summerall describes how the very nature of war changed irrevocably during his lifetime.

SFC Mark A. Alaimo shares a glimpse of his grueling experiences in the war on terrorism, how it shook his life and his eventual quest for healing. SFC Alaimos account is not a glamorized story of victory nor is it about the glory associated with war.

The pages give voice to the fears, doubts and pain that thousands of soldiers go through in the battlefield and even after combat. The author shares fragments of his childhood, his disappointments and even his struggle with post traumatic stress. What results is a book that effectively captures a realistic and humanized perspective of war and how it affects the lives that became intertwined in it. Ultimately, DUTY. HONOR. FOR MY COUNTRY is a story of one mans love for his country and the sacrifices he had to make for his devotion. It radiates hope and inspiration most especially to the soldiers who share the same story crystallized in the book.

Bestselling author Joe Drape reveals the unique pressures and expectations that make a year of Army football so much more than just a tally of wins and losses. The football team at the U.S. Military Academy is not like other college football teams. At other schools, athletes are catered to and coddled at every turn. At West Point, they carry the same arduous load as their fellow cadets, shouldering an Ivy League–caliber education and year-round military training. After graduation they are not going to the NFL but to danger zones halfway around the world. These young men are not just football players, they are soldiers first. New York Times sportswriter Joe Drape takes us inside the world of Army football, as the Black Knights and their third-year coach, Rich Ellerson, seek to turn around a program that had recently fallen on hard times, with the goal to beat Navy and "sing last" at the Army-Navy game in December. The 2011 season would prove a true test of the players' mettle and perseverance. Drawing on his extensive and unfettered access to the players and the coaching staff, Drape introduces us to this special group of young men and their achievements on and off the field. Anchoring the narrative and the team are five key players: quarterback Trent Steelman, the most gifted athlete; linebacker Steve Erzinger, who once questioned his place at West Point but has become a true leader; Andrew Rodriguez, the son of a general and the top scholar-athlete; Max Jenkins, the backup quarterback and the second-in-command of the Corps of Cadets; and Larry Dixon, a talented first-year running back. Together with Coach Ellerson, his staff, and West Point's officers and instructors, they and their teammates embrace the demands made on them and learn crucial lessons that will resonate throughout their lives—and ours.
