About the Book

Believing that our past wars have been a major factor in making this country what it is, Maj. Gen. J. F. C. Fuller (1878–1966) presents in this comprehensive study a complete roster of those crucial actions on which our national life has turned.
A professional soldier, military writer, and historian of international repute, Fuller has written a lucid, nontechnical, and absorbing account of every decisive American battle from Revolutionary times to the outbreak of World War II, including all the historic conflicts that have become epics of American courage and strength, from Trenton and Vicksburg to San Juan Hill and Meuse-Argonne. Each battle is fully described; enlightening information is provided on the military tactics employed, and the historical consequences of each are clearly examined. The author has also provided a cogent synopsis of the years between the decisive battles.
