"This beautifully produced book encapsulates the Sandhurst experience beautifully ... The stunning photographs and illustrations serve to underline the pain, passion and pride."

Soldier Magazine "I highly recommend this book for any military enthusiast." The Officer Magazine "... the book brings vividly to life the complete Sandhurst experience." The Craftsman Magazine "The best adjective I can use to describe this remarkable book is 'sumptuous'..."

The Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst, England, has a national and international reputation for instilling the arts and disciplines of leadership in tomorrow's commanders. It is the spiritual home of the officer corps of the British Army, and equally evokes a sense of belonging in thousands of overseas officers, who trained here. But what makes it so extraordinary? What makes it tick? Is it the place, its buildings, history, heritage and ethos, its training for leadership? Or is it the people, the Captains, the NCO's and the military staff, the academics and all those who work there? This stunningly illustrated 192 page hardback book - the first authorised comprehensive full-colour publication on the subject - explores and explains what makes Sandhurst so special. Beautifully designed and produced with compelling new photography, specially commissioned for the book, this is a vibrant portrait of a uniquely British centre of excellence that continues to wield an unprecedented degree of cultural influence throughout the world. "This book...sets out, by fine design and lavish illustration, to capture both the Sandhurst scene and its elusive but powerful ethos, which has planted the highest standards of leadership not only in our own army but in many others around the world. " - Sir John Keegan ("Daily Telegraph", Defence Editor).
