Description - Man of the People by Paul Alexander

The son and grandson of navy admirals, it was no surprise that a young John McCain entered active duty and quickly rose to the rank of captain as a naval aviator. What could not be foreseen was McCain's tour of duty in Vietnam, which would end with his plane being shot down. In "Man of the People", political journalist Paul Alexander offers an in-depth account of this remarkable patriot's journey from naval academy student to presidential hopeful. We follow McCain during his 21-year tour in the US Navy and watch as he evolves into one of America's most respected and distinguished political leaders.
