This is an excellent book on the military history of the United States, from the Revolution to just before the first Gulf War in 1990. It is a good read, simple but detailed, very detailed. If you don't like details don't read this book. However he does stay on topic and to be honest I loved reading this book. My only real criticism is that it is a military history of the United States, not of it's enemies, so its one sided. I don't mean it is biased, I mean it doesn't explain why the other side did or didn't do things. It is the story of Americas war, not a history of the wars America fought in, an important distinction.

The annotated bibliography is an added treat to anyone looking for further details or places to research. ( )
