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.
