Class Of '47 Annapolis America's Best by best-selling author Jack Sheehan.

Class of '47 Annapolis America's Best
by Jack Sheehan

The United States Naval Academy Class of 1947 combined perhaps the most distinguished and accomplished group in American military school history. With a former U.S. President, a Nobel Prize Winner, two Medal of Honor winners, several Rhodes Scholars, a former Director of the CIA, a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the billionaire Chairman of the legendary Masters tournament all in the same class, there must have been something in the drinking water. In this two-year research project, Sheehan reveals the amazing stories behind this esteemed and heroic group that he calls, "the most patriotic and inspiring group of men I've ever met."
