Clyde Cocke is a West Point graduate (United States Military Academy, 1977) and former U.S. Army Officer (1977-95) whose positions included Chief, Training Section, First U.S. Army, Fort Meade, Maryland; Small Group Instructor and Course Developer, U.S. Army Armor School, Fort Knox, Kentucky; and Scenario Writer for the Joint Readiness Training Center, Fort Polk, Louisiana. He also has served as assistant professor of military science for the Army Reserve Officer Training Program at the University of Cincinnati. His work has appeared in Toy Soldier and Model Figure. This will be his first book.
Established in 1802, the United States Military Academy at West Point is the oldest of the United States's service academies. Since the nearly 210 years of its existence, literally thousands of cadets have graced its halls. West Point has long been a leader in establishing traditions that have crept not only into the other service academies, but into colleges and universities throughout the United States. Traditions such as class rings, parades, rank structures, and its own lexicon have made USMA a model to emulate--and these are traditions that cadets must learn on the double. The life of a cadet is highly structured and full of pageantry. Pass in Review will be the first book to examine the lives of the cadets who earn their bars at West Point.

Author Clyde Cocke and photographer Eilene Harkless Moore will collaborate to chronicle the uniforms, events, and traditions of cadet life at West Point. From dining in the Cadet Mess to strolling the Flirtation Walk to participating in Ring Weekend, readers will get an inside peek into the life of a cadet. West Point's Highlanders, the Pipes and Drums of the United States Corps of Cadets, will be featured, as will the unique West Point Tartan. Contemporary images will blend with seldom-seen artwork from the West Point Museum collection to provide a behind-the-scenes look into the life of USMA cadets.
