Col. and Mrs. Tom McDaniel Book Presentation

Col. McDaniel presents The Major to Col. Samdahl

Col. and Mrs. W. Thomas McDaniel, Jr., presented the book, The Major: The Senior Officer in Charge: Commanding Fellow Prisoners of War to Preston Library. Written by Col. McDaniel, the book is about his father, Major W. Thomas McDaniel,  (West Point, 1941). Major McDaniel was the senior officer of American soldiers captured by the North Koreans. The book documents the brutal conditions POWs suffered in the Korean War and the heroic and inspirational leadership Major McDaniel provided under extreme conditions. It not only reveals important information about the “Forgotten War” but is a thought-provoking read for future leaders.
