The West Point Story by Colonel Red Reeder and Nardi Reeder Pampion. Published by Random House, 1956, First Edition. Hardcover book with dust jacket both in very good condition. ''The West Point story is linked closely to the story of our country. The book gives a graphic account of the trying days Colonel Thayer had establishing the West Point pattern -- a pattern which would furnish leaders for our nation in war and peace. In each crisis in our history, West Point had its leaders ready. In the beginning, Congress often considered abolishing the academy but in their trial by fire in the Mexican War, Academy graduates were proven invaluable. West Point has produced fierce fighing men like Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee and Douglas McArthur, and two illustrious Presidents.''
