An excellent book that explores America's military history as a constant factor in the evolution of American life. The author contends that no American can move without bumping into America's military past. "Easily the best single volume on the American military experience yet produced. The writing is superb, (Perret) is always right on the mark." - Stephen E. Ambrose, Author of "Eisenhower".
