Different Kind of Victory : A Biography of Admiral Thomas C. Hart (Reprint) (Paperback) (James Leutze)
about this item
From his early days as the superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy, where he fought for academic reform, to his “second” career in elected office, Hart could always be found amid controversy. In descriptive detail, James Leutze relates Hart’s war experiences, both professional and private, and examines his controversial relationships with other, equally strong-minded naval leaders. Blunt, outspoken, aloof, and occasionally referred to as “Terrible Tommy,” Adm. Thomas C. Hart was nevertheless respected and admired, an inspiration to his fellow officers.
