Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A good starting point for those wishing to learn more about America’s unique militia.”

“The history of war in America is the history of the citizen-soldier, a story that has often been neglected. . . . Michael Doubler and John Listman, Jr., have done an admirable job in telling the story of the National Guard and the citizen-soldier, with illustrations and text that clearly demonstrate the importance of their role in American military history.”
