Overview

Through glorious victories, devastating defeats, and incredible displays of bravery, award-winning author D.M. Giangreco immerses us in the thrilling history of the U.S. Army. From the defeat of British general Charles Cornwallis at Yorktown, to Antietam on the bloodiest day of the Civil War, to D-Day, the Tet Offensive, Operation Desert Sabre, and beyond, here is a matchless portrait of the world's greatest democracy in wartime. Filled with more than 1,400 photographs and historic paintings, United States Army is a fitting testament to the valor and sacrifice of America's ground troops.

Editorial Reviews

Brian Burnes
Giangreco, who for years served as an editor at Military Review, published at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, has a scholar's background in the subject. But the book, with about 1,400 images—paintings, photographs and artifacts—is accessible to all readers.

It was challenging, Giangreco said, to tell a story "that is clear and compelling to a general audience but will also meet the high expectations of both military personnel and historians."
