A recent graduate from West Point, David Lipsky narrates his account of contemporary training for male and female officers in today's U.S. Army. Both diction and an untrained voice add to the authenticity of Lipsky's presentation. Personal stories of fellow cadets in their miseries doing sit-ups, push-ups, and coping with rigorous regulations give intimate insight into a painful maturation. The use of the present tense in the narrative gives the prose an unusual twist. No one will hear this title and think that the alma mater of Robert E. Lee and Douglas MacArthur will ever be the same again. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
