Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0794837735, Hardcover)In the 100 Greatest Military Photographs, one of America's best-know military historians takes you on a personal guided tour of images that have shaped, changed, and defined how we think of war and soldering. This dramatically illustrated coffee-table book is by Robert J. Dalessandro, chief historian and director of one of the nations's most prestigious military history organizations. Inside, the reader will find famous photographs and paintings dating from the early 19th century to today. "Each of the 100 Greatest was voted into place by historians, artists, and members of the United States military," says Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker. "The 100 Greatest Military Photographs is not just a fancy picture book. It's a time machine that takes you to a hundred different points in American and world history." Readers will travel back to before the Civil War and to the growing pains of our defiant young nation. Relive the drama and upheaval of the Civil War...the rallying cries of America's war with Spain...the emotional years of World War II...famous scenes of modern-day battle...and many points in between. Battleships and battalions, officers and enlisted, big guns in battle and quiet moments of reflection — all of these and more await the reader among the 100 Greatest Military Photographs.
