The Lords of Discipline by Pat Conroy

Michael Erin

CEO of Progressive Management in Chicago, Michael Erin builds upon an extensive work history as a business administrator and a military career as captain in the United States Army. For leisure reading, one of Michael Erin’s favorite works of fiction is The Lords of Discipline.

The creation of celebrated author Pat Conroy, The Lords of Discipline received significant acclaim upon its release in 1980. Singled out by the Wall Street Journal Book Club and hailed as an “American classic” by Larry King, this bestselling novel tells the story of four cadets amid the rampant pride and arrogance of a corrupt military academy. The narrative unfolds through the eyes of the rebellious hero Will McLean – a man who follows his own personal code of honor.

Screenwriters Thomas Pope and Lloyd Fonvielle adopted The Lords of Discipline into a 1983 film of the same name. Directed by Emmy, BAFTA, and Cannes Palme d’Or nominee Franc Roddam, this film carried the tagline, “A tale of human triumph and honor.”
