Description: After five and a half years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, naval aviator John McCain returned home.This is the story of McCain's American journey and the character lessons he learned from an intriguing array of people, including baseball legend Ted Williams, President Theodore Roosevelt, Congressman Morris Udall, Senator Henry "Scoop" Jackson, and visionary aviation proponent Billy Mitchell, who personifies McCain's ideal of what a true maverick is. "Every naval officer who served between the two world wars knew who Billy Mitchell was, " McCain writes. "And most of them hated him." Yet it was Mitchell who made military leaders realize that their vaunted battleships were vulnerable to air attack and who laid the foundation for the creation of the air force.McCain interweaves stories of his favorite mavericks with his life story -- his final days in the navy; his first run for Congress; his education as a U.S. senator; and his electrifying run for the presidency in 2000. Through it all, McCain has maintained a sense of humor and a flair for candor. As in Faith of My Fathers, these pages are enlivened by the voice of an honest man searching and meaning through public service in times of conflict. Worth the Fighting For is one man's story, but it is very much a story for us all.
