Officers and Gentlemen: Historic West Point in Photographs by Jeffrey Simpson

The leaders who brought the nation through the Civil War & WWI, who built the Panama Canal & secured an American empire in the Pacific — were often West Pointers. This book contains more than 200 photos that detail the exploits of these officers and the character and methods of the institution that trained them. Selected from the archives of the U.S. Military Academy and other public and private collections, these images present a unique portrait of Americas heritage. The mood and atmosphere of life at West Point are graphically transmitted through dozens of photos of cadet life. The social and athletic life and visits by dignitaries also receive coverage.
