About this product
- DescriptionThoughts on issues of character, leadership, integrity, personal and public virtue, and ethics, the selections in this volume converge around the central theme of how man can rise with dignity to prevail in the face of adversity lessons just as valid for the challenges of present-day life as they were for the author's Vietnam experience.
- Author BiographyVice Admiral James Stockdale, a senior research fellow at the Hoover Institution, served in the navy from 1947 to 1979, beginning as a test pilot and instructor at Patuxent River, Maryland, and spending two years as a graduate student at Stanford University.

In early 1987, a dramatic presentation of In Love and War was viewed by more than 45 million viewers on NBC television.
