Publisher's Comments

A superb description of modern military culture, and one of the most gripping accounts of university life.... Powerful.... Wonderfully told. --The New York Times Book Review

As David Lipsky follows a future generation of army officers from their proving grounds to their barracks, he reveals the range of emotions and desires that propels these men and women forward. From the cadet who struggles with every facet of West Point life to those who are decidedly huah, Lipsky shows people facing challenges so daunting and responsibilities so heavy that their transformations are fascinating to watch. Absolutely American is a thrilling portrait of a unique institution and those who make up its ranks.

With an updated Epilogue by the author.
