A Leadership Book for the Ages:
Principles to Guide You & Stories to Inspire You
The best leaders in the world have come out of West Point — the likes of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, General George S. Patton, and corporate leaders, such as Marsh Carter, former Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, and Alex Gorsky, CEO of Johnson & Johnson. In many ways, the United States Military Academy (USMA) — West Point — is synonymous with leadership. Notably, however, the names that most people associate with this venerable institution have included only men.
The first few classes of women at West Point faced numerous obstacles to graduate, yet through the cauldron of that experience they developed a formidable hardiness that firmly places them among the best of the best.
