Unbending regulations, excruciating physical demands, relentless academic requirements this is everyday life at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Since 1802, this revered institution has accepted only the most promising of Americans with the sole aim of transforming them into courageous soldiers and "leaders of character."
For the first time ever, National Geographic cameras capture the dynamic process as fresh-faced new cadets are pushed, shoved, and stretched beyond their physical and emotional limits, each prepared to sacrifice his or her life for duty, honor, and country. Surviving West Point provides an exclusive in-your-face look inside the legendary academy through the eyes of the cadets.
