Description

Today's Best Military Writing is the first-ever collection of the finest articles on the military published in the past five years. Esteemed military historian and bestselling author Walter J. Boyne has gathered twenty-one writers, both military and civilian, and their published articles and essays on all aspects of the various branches of the armed forces and on the military history of the United States.

From searching analyses of wars spanning two centuries to examinations of how our country's modern armed forces are coping with new threats that are more dangerous than any they've faced before, these articles represent the best of the best---incisive, thoughtful, and probing opinions and information, often written by the people who have lived and breathed their topics.

Article subjects in this volume include:
*A chillingly logical hypothesis that could be the next step in terrorism---mating cruise missiles with biological warfare
*A call to assign coastal U.S. defense to the branch of the armed forces that is most equipped to deal with it---the Coast Guard
*The history and development of the F-15 Eagle, one of the most famous jet fighters in the world
*Little known facts about the use and deployment of artillery pieces during the Indian Wars of 1860-1890
*The role of U.S. Army chaplains tending to German war criminals during the Nuremberg Trials.
