He portrays the brutality of the hazing regimen at Annapolis, how he nearly lost his life twice serving on submarines, and his amazing job interview with Admiral Rickover. He writes movingly about the profound influence his mother had on him and how he admired his father even though he didn't always emulate him. ; Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 257 pp; Signed by Author .
