Description on front flap:
One of a hundred female officers of Colonel rank or higher out of two thousand seven hundred males of equal rank, Lt. Col. Cheryl Dietrich spent twenty years in the military, transformed from an overweight, introvert and military neophyte into one of the key personnel redesigning the structure of the Air Force within the Pentagon. In this stirring and revelatory memoire, Cheryl explains what it takes to stay the course, overcome male domination issues, break the glass ceiling more than once, and deal with the political issues facing the Pentagon in Washington.
In Formation also covers subjects specific to military life: what it is like to be a Squadron Commander, lead a NATO division, mobility exercises, wartime exercises in gas mask and chem gear, deploying with NATO to war-torn Croatia, and a fatal air show disaster. It covers the basic experiences of relationships in the military—from the mundane to the heroic, this is a story about finding within oneself the kernels of courage that define the warrior – female or male.

Author Bio (back flap):
Cheryl Dietrich wrote Air Force regulations at the Manpower and Personnel Center. Often the only female, she rose to become squadron commander at Ramstein Air Base in Germany, then executive officer for the 86th Fighter Wing, commanded the Mission Support Squadron at Spangdahlem Air Base, and, at the Pentagon, developed plans sent to Congress for the Air Force’s personnel drawdown.
In the end, I will need a psd of the front cover with all fonts, a copy of the spine with all fonts, a copy of the flaps with all fonts and a copy of the back cover (no text except for back logline). All these separate elements are needed to complete the InDesign final files and allow for adjustments later please. However, if the front image wraps around to the back, that is fine, it can be one image (one psd) for the front, spine and back (not flaps).
