About the Author

John M. Carroll is Regents' Professor of History at Lamar University, Beaumont, Texas. Colin F. Baxter is chair of the Department of History at East Tennessee State University.


The twelve essays in this volume combine in a comprehensive, well-integrated and economically presented overview of America's military heritage from the colonial era to the present day. Analytical rather than narrative in approach, never shying from controversial issues, the work is admirably suited to undergraduate and graduate classes, and should appeal to general readers as well. -- Dennis E. Showalter, Colorado College; author of Patton and Rommel: Men of War in the Twentieth Century
An exciting, readable, and thought-provoking study. * Johnson City Press *
