A detailed book on the training of our future naval officers. The author gives a well rounded picture of life at Annapolis as lived by the mid-shipmen today. From the physical examination at entrance to the receipt of diploma and commission, there seems nothing omitted, even to an amusing chapter entitled ""What Every Drag Should Know"". Legend and story behind the customs of today -- 100 years background for a modern training school. The book ends with the ""Annapolis Log"" and a chapter on application for appointment. A handbook for any parent with an eye to a son's naval career -- and a plus sale for boys interested in the subject.
