From the Publisher"A sophisticated work that addresses problems in military education that are far from being resolved today. It is at once an intellectual history of the U.S. Army at a most interesting time in its evolution and an illuminating commentary on the ways that an army can utilize history. Civil War buffs will be especially pleased by Reardon's analysis of the Army's study of the Civil War during this period."—Jay Luvaas, Army War College, author of The Military Legacy of the Civil War.
"An original and important study that breaks new ground in the fields of military history and historiography."—George C. Herring, author of America's Longest War: The United States and Vietnam, 1950-1975.
"An excellent and original study of the development of American military thought and literature in the era before World War I."—Timothy K. Nenninger, National Archives, author of The Leavenworth Schools and the Old Army.
