    4. Substance It is what makes a book Without it, there is very little left for the reader to grab on to From the first pages of this book through the last chapter, I kept waiting, eagerly anticipating for that substance to show up It never did I am sure her story is one that contains a great deal of substance, why she chose not to include any of it is beyond me She certainly alluded to it, often Quite a few times, she tells the reader, believe me, it was the hardest toughest most miserable, etc , b [...]

    5. Heroism and courage take many forms Many feel that it s about saving the lives of someone, or climbing the highest mountain, or breaking the color barrier in baseball To be sure, it is all of these things, but Nancy Mace s book showed a heroism and courage of a different sort The daughter of a Citadel graduate, she always wanted to attend this school At the time, it was an all male military school with a rich tradition dating back before the Civil War Nancy and three others were accepted by the [...]

    6. this was a veryo boo for me, mostly because i always wanted to go to the citadel for colledge not the female part I got a chance to learn about all the aspects of the Citadel that I missed when I was there Other than that though the book was about one of the first females allowed into the CItadel Military Academy and about all of her struggles with being the only female in a group of males Non yo mention the fact that her father was the comandant of the Marine Corps during this time so she got e [...]

    8. Since I m going to school in Charleston this fall, I thought I should have a little background on the town, the Citadel included Interestingly enough, the author is my former teacher s daughter.The book was both interesting and inspiring Although I m not much of a feminist, Nancy Mace s story does kindle a sense of feminine pride Learning about the life of cadets was also informational and surprisingly absorbing.

    9. In the Company of Men was a great book to read It details greatly many of trials Nancy Mace encountered entering the military, and her efforts to come past them As she grew up in a military family, she knew the struggles of military life, but she suffered for being a woman, literally in the company of men , where men were the only ones in the military.

    10. Once upon a time I wanted to go to a military academy So I read this book It was actually pretty interesting Seeing as I ve never been to a military school, I don t know how accurate it is, but it definitely wasn t boring I didn t exactly like the author for parts of the book, but I gave it a 4 because it wasn t that bad And it kept my attention.

    11. My oldest son graduated from The Citadel right before the first women were admitted so this book was a must read I found it very interesting and admire the young women and the challenges they met Nancy Mace s father was also the commanding general at the school so she really had a lot to face Also enjoyed reading about her father s time in Vietnam and the importance of The Ring.

    12. An inspiring autobiography about the first female cadet in the Citadel Humbling to hear about all that she went thru on a daily basis and yet was still able to focus on her long term goal and deliver high in both academics and athleticism.

    13. I really liked this book It is about the first woman to graduate from The Citadel She is the daughter of a Citadel grad Every day was hell but every day was a good day, meaning it was a step closer to getting the ring and graduating I recommend this book to people interested in The Citadel.

    14. The author of the book was the first female graduate of the Citadel, South Carolina s unique military force separate from every branch of the US Military It s a fascinating peek inside the deep prejudices of the southern male world.

    15. An outstanding book which captures Nancy Mace s POV as one of the Citadel s first female graduates Can t recommend this book highly enough for anyone who has ever wondered what it was like to be in that first group of women who integrated into the Citadel s all male cadre.

    16. i don t know why this was on my list or why i loved it so much, but there it is i guess i m just a sucker for the first woman to books.
