Five decades later, he would retire after heading the nations largest supported work program, as well as his own successful federal contracting company. This amazing story is recounted in Against All Odds, a stirring account of Caves surviving and thriving despite all life could throw at him.A wide-ranging yet intimate memoir, Against All Odds follows Cave beginning with his earliest recollections in a violently racist South.

But the deep-seated attitudes there dont disappear when he escapes to the North and, later, the U.S. Army. Cave brings readers along for the ride as he rises to a Major, commanding two battalions and receiving a Bronze Star. Its a revealing glimpse into an ambitious African American soldiers unique experiences navigating the militarys hesitantly integrated ranks, and the challenges of raising a family along the way. As he returns to the private sector, Cave continues to document an engrossing cast of characters - some endearing, others maddening - that readers wont soon forget.
