The Jeep: A Story of the Virginia Military Institute is an inspiring and melancholy tale of the internal struggles a man faces on his path to become something, to be remembered and accepted, if only within his own fractured memories. J. Michael Judge has penned an exceptionally honest and highly entertaining account which traverses and twists through the recounting of an elaborate college prank and a man's struggle to understand what makes his life worthwhile. Forged from within the walls of 'VMI', The Jeep is an uncompromising look into the making of a man and may prove to be a literary breakout to mirror the one J. Michael Judge endured at his time with 'VMI'. Highly recommended.
"Five stars!!!" The Jeep is truly an inspirational journey. A candid telling of a young man and his struggles with life, relationships and an institution The Jeep will captivate you from page one. I recommend this book to one and all who are willing to look inside themselves and see that which this book illustrates so well, we are all flawed but that never means we should give up. Five stars!!!
