About this Product

Established in 1802, the United States Military Academy at West Point is the oldest of the United States's service academies. During nearly 210 years of existence, thousands of cadets have walked its halls. It has long been a leader in establishing traditions that have influenced colleges and universities throughout the United States. In this new book, author Clyde Cocke and photographer Eilene Harkless Moore chronicle the lives, uniforms, events, and traditions of West Point cadets, from dining in the Cadet Mess to strolling the Flirtation Walk. West Point's Highlanders, the Pipes and Drums of the United States Corps of Cadets, are featured, as is the unique West Point Tartan. Contemporary images blend with seldom-seen artwork from the West Point Museum collection to provide a behind-the-scenes look into the life of USMA cadets.
