An interview with Michael E. Haskew, author of West Point 1915: Eisenhower, Bradley, and the Class the Stars Fell On.

ABOUT THE BOOK (if you don't use Smile, sign up and designate GallantFew as your charity of choice!)
Although Dwight Eisenhower and Omar Bradley, both five-star generals, are the most recognizable in the class of West Point 1915, other class members contributed significantly to the Allied victory in World War I, World War II and played key roles either in the post-war U.S. military establishment or in business and industry after World War II, especially in the Korean War and the formation of NATO. For more than half a century, these men exerted tremendous influence on the shaping of modern America, which remains substantial to this day. Individually, the stories of these military and political leaders are noteworthy. Collectively, they are astonishing. West Point, 1915 explores the achievements of this remarkable group.
