The story of Arizona Senator John McCain’s military career is truly an amazing one. As a naval aviator he was shot down over North Vietnam and seriously injured. He spent five years in a POW camp where he was beaten, tortured, and nearly allowed to die. But his remarkable story began long before that, with his grandfather and father, the first father-son, four-star admirals in American history.
John McCain Sr. was one of the Navy’s greatest commanders, leading an aircraft carrier in key battles of World War II. John McCain Jr. followed a similar path as a submarine commander during World War II and eventually commanded all U.S. forces in the Pacific during the Vietnam War. John McCain III would later credit his steely resolve during captivity to the inspiration and faith of his fathers. This “candid, moving, and entertaining memoir” (Kirkus Reviews), now an A&E movie to be aired Memorial Day weekend, is "impossible to read without being moved.” (USA Today)
