Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the Battle of Bunker Hill to the Battle of Midway, from Vietnam to the Persian Gulf, from George Washington to Douglas MacArthur, The Atlas of American Military History covers the full span of America at war, exploring the personalities, methods, strategies and historical contexts of each conflict.

Following a loose chronological framework, this book examines every significant military campaign and war in which the United States has been engaged, both domestically and internationally, from the Revolutionary War to the present. Written by trusted military historians, each section combines analysis with a strong narrative account and an assessment of major campaigns and battlestaking up the American viewpoint as well as those of its allies and opponents. Military method, weaponry, and communication technology receive detailed treatment, in the text and in the maps.

The center point of the book is its stunning color maps, including historical military cartography, specially commissioned maps, and graphic reconstructions. These maps show troop, ship, and aircraft movements of major campaigns and battles, the theaters of fighting, the balance of forces, and the wider strategic picture. It also features hundreds of illustrations, appendixes, and a glossary and information on military commanders, events, treaties, code names, and civilian personalities.

Edited by noted historian James Bradford, The Atlas of American Military History is a beautiful and informative volume for history buff and general reader alike.

Review:

"Each spread contains at least one colorful map or a captioned black-and-white archival photograph or reproduction. The military cartography is outstanding; the 143 detailed maps are filled with information." School Library Journal
