Editorial Reviews


“Clyde Cocke’s Pass in Review is a deftly written and richly illustrated account of the United States Corps of Cadets. Drawing on impressive archival research and his personal experience as a cadet, Cocke gives his readers an insider’s look at West Point and, in particular, the lives of the young men and (since 1976) women who make up the Long Gray Line. This volume is a sturdy addition to Osprey Publishing’s military history collection.”
—Lance Betros (USMA 1977), editor, West Point: Two Centuries and Beyond, and author, Carved from Granite: West Point since 1902
“Author Cocke’s fascinating history of the U. S. Military Academy and its Corps of Cadets is a ‘must have’ resource for historians—it shatters some long-held myths about West Point—and is a great read for anyone interested in the evolution of America’s premier Service Academy.”
—Col. (Ret.) Jerry D. Morelock, PhD (USMA 1969), Editor in Chief, Armchair General Magazine
“Past histories of West Point have tended to focus on the institution itself. This one breaks the mold, concentrating instead on the very heart of the Academy—the Corps of Cadets. The flowing narrative, supplemented by a treasury of photos, traces the evolution of the Corps from its Revolutionary War origins right up to today: what they wore, where they lived, how they trained. A copy of this splendid book belongs in the library of every graduate and—especially—in the homes of all young Americans who aspire to join the Long Gray Line and, in their turn, pass in review on the Plain at West Point.”
—Dave R. Palmer, Lieutenant General, U. S. Army (Retired), USMA Superintendent, 1986–91
“For many who have visited, worked, or attended the Military Academy at West Point, the school’s traditions and environment seem almost constant. Clyde Cocke, in this illustrated history, vividly describes through photos and illustrations and an engaging narrative the evolution the Cadet experience and how the institution and its Cadets have adapted and changed to meet the needs of the Army and the Nation.”
—Mike Perry, Executive Director, Army Heritage Center Foundation

“Pass in Review includes a wealth of information on the history and traditions of the U.S. Military Academy. Any young man or woman interested in applying to West Point would be well served by reading Pass in Review.”
—Matthew J. Seelinger, Chief Historian, Army Historical Foundation

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By John W. Faulconbridge on March 28, 2012
Format: Hardcover
I'll admit a bias... as a West Point Grad ('78)who also knows Clyde I came to this with a positive expectation. I can proudly state that the book lives up to that expectation and more. The mix of historical illustrations and current photos is excellent. The focus on the cadets rather than the institution is refreshing. You get to see both formal and informal uniforms and a look into the life of cadets past and present.
Beat Navy!
