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.

These maps show troop, ship, and aircraft movements of major campaigns and battles, the theaters of fighting, the balance of forces, and the wider strategic picture. It also features hundreds of illustrations, appendixes, and a glossary and information on military commanders, events, treaties, code names, and civilian personalities.
