Deep in the woods, up miles of unmarked road lined with towering oak trees, sits an intensely private and fascinating complex that serves as the presidential family retreat: Camp David. Purposely hard to find and invitation-only, this exclusive and elusive campground situated in the Catoctin Mountains has only been visited by a select few, while the rest of us have been left to wonder, “What is it really like?”

That is the question Rear Admiral Michael Giorgione, CEC, USN (Ret.), aims to answer with Inside Camp David: The Private World of the Presidential Retreat. A former Camp David Commander, Giorgione served under both President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush. Combining first-person anecdotes of the presidents and their families with years of storied history and interviews with commanders past and present, Giorgione reveals the intimacy between the First Family and this notable sanctuary. Timed to the 75th anniversary of the camp, Inside Camp David is the first-ever insider account of this historic retreat.
