|The unsentimental education of an idealistic, brilliant American naval officer.|
From the Publisher:
It began in 2001. Christopher Brownfield was a naïve young midshipman. His heroes: Oliver North and John McCain.
In The Education of a Patriot Brownfield tells of his life-long love affair with the U.S. Navy, how he blindly followed its "rigidity and its clarity in separating right from wrong"; how he cut his teeth on its principles of strategy, war doctrine, and weapons systems. He tells of his years serving on a nuclear submarine-the first hybrid vehicle capable of sustaining its environment and mission independent of oil and how he received his advanced nuclear supervisory certification and became a nuclear submariner, charged with an entire reactor plant aboard a nuclear warship leading secret missions in the war on terror.
