Get the complete story on the largest, oldest, and longest-serving branch of the US military. From the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary to the "Coalition of the Willing" in today's Iraq War, the United States Army has fulfilled its solemn charge for the past 235 years: to provide for the common defense, at home and abroad. To a significant degree, the US Army's story is the story of the United States, as becomes clear in this beautifully illustrated history of the military branch. From its beginnings as a rag-tag force of colonial militia to its current incarnation as the world's most powerful and sophisticated land-combat force, no detail is left unexplored in Army: An Illustrated History. With an emphasis on post-Vietnam operations and detailed information on the technological component of the force's current military might, military historian Chester Hearn, with contributions on the past ten years of the branch's history by Robert F. Dorr, follows the US Army through its combat history--the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War, various Indian wars, the Spanish-American War, World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam, the first Gulf war, and Afghanistan and Iraq--offering a complete and thoroughly fascinating account of an armed force ever remaking itself to meet the challenges of an ever-changing world.
