War in America to 1775: Before Yankee Doodle

War in America to 1775: Before Yankee Doodle

by John Morgan Dederer

Editorial Reviews

Deliberately written before the war ended, in order to avoid the temptation to explain the outcome. Chronicles events of the military conflict between Soviet troops and US-backed Afghan rebels based in Pakistan, 1978-86. Urban, a war correspondent for the British newspaper, The Independent, uses official and private sources from both sides. Acidic paper. Dederer argues that by 1775 Americans' view on war, the composition and role of their armed forces, and how these forces would be employed were intrinsically wedded to all aspects of colonial culture and society. Further, he demonstrates that these conceptions were indelibly etched and can be seen in American military culture today. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
