Reference Guide to United States Military HistoryUnknown - 1991-1993
An impressive beginning to the five-volume series, each chronologically organized volume of which will examine the role of the military and its leaders in American life during a specific historical period through narrative chapters, biographical profiles, descriptions of the principal battles and events, discussion of special topics, and an array of maps and illustrations. Volume one proves not only visually interesting and highly readable but current in its scholarship as well, as it traverses the period from the first permanent European settlement of North America through the War of 1812.
