Summary: This new volume in the Major Problems in American History series traces the evolution of the American military, its institutions, strategic doctrines, and technology. Compiled by experts in the field, the anthology of primary sources and essays covers the entire span of American military history, beginning with Native American and European warfare. The selections provide a social and institutional focus of the "new" military history, including the co
mbat experience of the common enlisted personnel, and follow the metamorphosis of the militia, the professionalization of the officers' corps, and the course of civilian control of the military. Students also will explore the relationship between American military action and institutions and the unfolding role of the United States throughout the world.
  • In keeping with the proven strengths of the series, the compelling documents (6-10 per chapter) are grouped with important secondary sources (2-3 per chapter), accompanied by chapter introductions, selection headnotes, and suggested readings. Students are encouraged to evaluate the sources, test the interpretations of distinguished historians, and draw their own conclusions.
  • Coverage includes Native American and European warfare, the American Revolution, the Civil War, the World Wars, the Korean Conflict, the Vietnam Conflict, the Gulf War, and Bosnia.
