Description

The 7th Infantry's motto, "Willing and Able," speaks volumes about its past. Throughout America's history, the soldiers of this regiment have proven, through their sacrifice, their bloodshed and their sweat, that they are willing and able to fight America's wars. At practically ever crucial moment, the 7th has been there, shaping the future of the country and, by extension, the world. Acclaimed historian John C. McManus takes readers through the amazing story of this ever-present regiment in modern warfare, from Korea to its current toils in the Middle East. McManus tells the tale of those ordinary infantrymen who have always made up the 7th. These soldiers have always been, and probably always will be, the heart and soul of the United States Army. The 7th is a vital part of America's military tradition, and McManus tells its story complete with the struggle, anguish, fear, sacrifice, triumph, and pride of its soldiers. McManus provides a compelling glimpse of not only the infantryman's journey through American history, but the shaping of our nation as a whole.
