Bicentennial Commemorative History Book

Citizen Soldiers: Bicentennial Commemorative History BookCitizen & Soldiers: The First 200 Years of Norwich University

For 200 years, Norwich University has been educating citizen soldiers to serve, defend, and build the republic, as both uniformed and civilian leaders.  New York Times bestselling author Alex Kershaw brings this remarkable story to life in a beautifully written and illustrated book on the history and heritage of the nation’s oldest private military college.  

This well-researched and authoritative account captures Norwich University’s development from its founding in 1819 to the present day, and the accomplishments and many contributions of the institution and its alumni in the landscape of higher education and American history. 

A limited edition commemorative edition—just 400 copies--will be available on a pre-order basis.  Commemorative editions will be preserved in a linen covered slipcase and each copy will be numbered and personally signed by Alex Kershaw, President Richard W. Schneider and GEN Gordon R. Sullivan, Honorary Chair of the Bicentennial.  Personalized inscriptions will also be available.  Those who pre-order a commemorative edition will be invited to a private book premiere luncheon during Homecoming 2018.

"I stayed up most of the night reading this very informative and enlightening draft of our 200-year journey.  To say I am excited and in awe of Kershaw’s talent would be an understatement."  -- GEN Gordon R. Sullivan USA (Ret.) ‘59

"Alex Kershaw has captured the essence of Norwich in a well written, very readable narrative.  Norwich clearly has an amazing history which is probably unknown to most people and certainly worth telling."  -- E. Miles Prentice, Norwich Trustee

"Kershaw vividly captures the history of Norwich through the accomplishments of its alumni. It is a fine book that will do great justice to the Norwich story."  -- Carlo D’Este ‘58, military historian and biographer
