Binding:Paperback
Published:August 15, 2017
Named a "Notable Naval Book of 2012" by Proceedings magazine, In the Shadow of Greatness is now available in paperback. The editors spent three years inviting their classmates, the first USNA graduating class after 9/11, to open up their hearts to share what they endured on the frontlines. The end product is a superb collection of experiences "the next greatest generation." Serving as a virtual podium for the voices of those unlikely to write about war, these first-person accounts of real-world operations are written with humility and respect for those they served with, bringing deserved recognition to all veterans of this so-called "Long War."
