Description

The 7th Infantry Regiment's motto, "Willing and Able," speaks volumes about its past. The 7th has fought in more battles, in more places, than any other regiment in the U.S. Army. At practically every crucial moment in America's wars, the 7th has been there, shaping the future of the country and, by extension, the world. Acclaimed combat historian John C. McManus takes readers from the Cold War to the War on Terror, with a complete account of the 7th's anguish and triumphs. Based on nearly a decade of research, from archives to battlefield visits to McManus's personal interviews with 7th Infantry soldiers, this book is a definitive and moving story of Americans in combat.
