9780553271362: The Lords of Discipline

A novel you will never forget...

This  powerful and breathtaking novel is the story of  four cadets who have become bloodbrothers. Together  they will encounter the hell of hazing and the  rabid, raunchy and dangerously secretive atmosphere  of an arrogant and proud military institute. They  will experience the violence. The passion. The  rage. The friendship. The loyalty. The betrayal.  Together, they will brace themselves for the brutal  transition to manhood... and one will not  survive.

With all the dramatic brilliance he  brought to The Great Santini, Pat  Conroy sweeps you into the turbulent world of  these four friends -- and draws you deep into the  heart of his rebellious hero, Will McLean, an  outsider forging his personal code of honor, who falls  in love with a whimsical beauty... and who  undergoes a transition more remarkable then he ever  imagined possible.
