A much needed book...

“A great review of the 12 important US wars! Easy reading and very concise. Definitely worth buying and reading this book.”

— Richard S. Tobey Jr.

Great summary and very good maps...

"The knowledge summarized in this helpful little book will give you a fundamental understanding of America's 12 wars. It will, as it were, level the playing field among all 12. I found that I knew much more about the Civil War, the Revolution, World War II and the Vietnam War, that I did about the other eight.

I was very happy to have a source that gave me a solid base on all of them."

— Robert C Ross (New Jersey)

Exactly as the title says...

“This is the perfect companion text for any student of American history. Should be referenced as a primer for all of America's conflicts.”

— M. Damico


“The narratives in AMERICA AT WAR are informative and readable, and I learned a fair amount of American military history that I probably should have known but didn't. ”

— Richard Kalter

Crucial Issues...

“America At War provides the necessary prelude to analysis and raises the crucial political and moral issues of each conflict.”

— Fred Morhart
Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate teacher, Fairfax County Public Schools.
