What People are Saying About This

Harry S. Laver

"More than a simple accounting of early nineteenth-century military policy-making, Wettemann describes the multi-faceted tensions that influenced American leaders as they worked to build a military establishment that would ensure national security. From the War of 1812 to the Civil War, civil/military relations, militia versus professional soldiers, the natural aristocracy versus the Common Man, and Whig versus Jacksonian Democrat all influenced the maturation of America's defense policies and force structure. Wettemann's study examines the interaction of these factors to deepen our understanding of this critical period in the country's national and military growth and should be read by all political and military historians of the period."
