In 1999 John McCain wrote one of the most acclaimed and bestselling memoirs of the decade Faith of My Fathers That book ended in 1972 with McCain’s release from imprisonment in Vietnam This is the rest of his story about his great American journey from the US Navy to his electrifying run for the presidency interwoven with heartfelt portraits of the mavericks who have inspired him through the years Ted Williams Theodore Roosevelt visionary aviation proponent Billy Mitchell Marlon Brando in Viva ZapataFor Whom the Bell Tolls who showed McCain the ideals of heroism and sacrifice stoicism and redemption and why certain causes despite the costs are Worth the Fighting ForAfter five and a half years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam naval aviator John McCain returned home a changed m.
