Taking this to the meetup today to give to someone who can take it to Birdies for me next month in honor of our friend, MaryZee. She loved Pat Conroy and recommended this book in particular to me, once.

Journal Entry 3 by wingSqueakyChuwing at Rockville, Maryland USA on Sunday, November 05, 2017
This book followed me home from Birdie's Cafe where we had a BCinDC (BookCrossing) meetup today in memory of our friend and fellow Bookcrosser, MaryZee.

I read this book in 1998. This is what I wrote about it after I read it:

This is a novel relating the harsh conditions a cadet must endure if he is to graduate from a military academy. The story is of one cadet who endures four grueling years at a military academy and develops a decidedly anti-military stance. It is a wonderful novel of camaraderie and friendship. However, it is also a testimony to man's inhumanity to man. I guess that is what the military stands for if one is to learn to kill in defense of one's country. A very unsettling novel, it left me glad that I personally never had to endure an environment such as the one Conroy describes.

I'm releasing this book for the following BookCrossing challenge:
