“The Annapolis Plebe," by Lieut.-Commander Edward L. Beach, U.S.N. Published by the Penn Publishing Co., 923 Arch Street, Philadelphia, Pa.
Lieutenant-Commander Beach's book, entitled "An Annapolis Plebe," gives to the juvenile readers of this country a faithful narrative of the first Year of a boy's life upon entering the Naval National Academy.
The story of Robert Drake's life as a "plebe" will be found both interesting and instructive to those who wish to peep behind the scenes at Annapolis. And to the boy who hearkens to the call of the sea, a call which once sounded can not be easily denied, these realistic pen pictures of the joys and sorrows of an Annapolis Plebe will show the advantage of those superlative qualities, honesty and manliness.
