Synopsis

America at War Set by John S. Bowman

In its history, the United States has been involved in many wars and conflicts, both abroad and on its own soil. Fully updated and revised, the new America at War set features enthralling examinations of the wars and conflicts that have been fought by American soldiers. From the Revolutionary War to the bloody Civil War that threatened to tear the country apart to the ongoing war against terror in Afghanistan, the titles in this set each examine the background of the region in a particular conflict, its history, the political situation, and the repercussions today. A new chapter in each volume details the various weapons and tactics used and the innovations to warfare. A dedicated chronology volume features how each of the 13 wars profiled fits into world events. Complete with full-color and black-and-white photographs and illustrations, full-color maps, sidebars, a glossary, and other further resources, this set is suited for middle and high school students seeking unbiased information about U.S. military history.
