The Long Gray Line tells the 25-year saga of three graduates of the West Point class of 1966. You'll follow them from their boisterous cadet years to the fires of Vietnam to the hard peace and internal struggles that followed the war. 

The Long Gray Line was originally published in print in 1989, but now, it's finally available in unabridged audio for the very first time. Plus, it features exclusive content, including an original foreword read by the author and a bonus interview.

Colin Powell calls The Long Gray Line "a profoundly moving saga in which the U.S. Military Academy at West Point stands center stage."
