Annapolis: The Making of a Naval Officer
This is the fourth book in the Blake Lawrence series. Graduates of the Naval Academy might recognize that this story could span any period of the twentieth century with a little spilled over on each side. In this case Blake enters the Naval Academy during the middle of the 20th century and faces the barriers and challenges placed in front of young men (and more recent, women) who aspire to a naval career: academic as well as hazing. It takes him into heroic situations both at sea and ashore in foreign places. Lawrence is based on situations that actually happened at Annapolis. The stories have, of course, been embellished to protect the innocent as well as the author and his friends; the names, characters, places and incidents are used fictitiously. The characters are composites and any resemblance to real people living or dead is entirely coincidental. read more
