About this book

From the Indian Wars of the seventeenth century to the military operations in Afghanistan, An Atlas of American Military History offers a fascinating account of every significant US military campaign and war, both domestically and internationally. Written by distinguished military historians, the atlas explores the personalities, strategies, and historical contexts of each conflict, taking into account both the American viewpoint and that of its allies and opponents. The atlas also features 140 stunning, specially commissioned colour maps that highlight troop, ship and aircraft movements, the theatres of fighting, the balance of forces and the wider strategic picture, as well as hundreds of illustrations. An Atlas of American Military History provides an outstanding and indispensable contribution to the study of war.
