Art of War: Eyewitness U.S. Combat Art from the Revolution Through the 20th Century by Col. H. Avery Chenoweth, USMC (Ret) Col. H. Avery, Avery Avery Chenoweth, Col H. Chenoweth

Great world conflicts have produced not only great military heroes but also great artists who have documented the heroism and the bloody battles. Spanning wars that have involved U.S. troops, this gallery of outstanding works of art ranges from majestic land, sea, and airscapes portraying all the branches of the armed services to closeups of hand-to-hand combat. The paintings are more expressive than photographs because they compress many experiences into a single view. Charts and maps clarify particular scenes, and first-hand testimonies of the men and women who participated in the battles add an extra dimension. The many oversize reproductions highlight some of the most moving paintings and illustrations ever created in the field of combat art, most made available to the public for the first time. A Selection of the Military Book Club.
