In the Shadow of Greatness addresses issues that go beyond one USNA class; it explains the trials of most military veterans of this era. Understanding how a young person enlists to serve, deploys to the fight, and returns home is unknown to most Americans. Veterans pack up their uniforms, but never lose the call for service when the return to civilian society.
The profiles in this book represent the "Next Great Generation" of American leaders. Men and women who lost their innocence in battle and their youths to a decade of deployments, throughout which they never gave up hope. In exchange for down range scars, they gained an unbreakable sense of purpose to America's ideals of freedom, equality, and democracy.
In the Shadow of Greatness was edited by Joshua Welle, John Ennis, Katherine Kranz, and Graham Plaster. Narrators include Piper Goodeve, Vanessa Johansson, Gabra Zackman, and Ben Bartolone.

Excellent True Stories on War
This was an excellent book about the Navy Academy and the stories of war. There was so much that I did not know about the wars my generation has gone through, but know I have a much better understanding.
Thank you for sharing theses stories.
