Almanac of American Military History is yet another reference work from acclaimed historian Dr. Spencer C.

A comprehensive, four-volume title, this almanac traces all of American military history from the European voyages of discovery through 2011, chronicling the pivotal moments that have shaped the United States into the country it is today. In addition to documenting key events, this title presents biographies of more than 250 key individuals and provides information on more than 250 historically significant technologies and weapons systems. A detailed glossary is included, as are discussions of ranks and military awards and decorations. Divided into conflict periods, each chapter includes a detailed chronology, reference-entry sidebars, statistical information, primary-source documents, and a bibliography.
Product Details

Promotional Information

Throughout the United States's history-indeed, even before our nation was officially founded-military action has been critical to its development and direction. America's independence and freedom from foreign interference, as well as vast areas of land, came as a result of hard-fought-and costly-military conflicts and engagements against numerous adversaries. Without centuries of war, America would likely be a vastly different place today.

About the Author

Spencer C. Tucker, PhD, is senior fellow in military history for ABC-CLIO and the author or editor of more than 40 books and encyclopedias, many of which have been recognized by awards.

Reviews

"Tucker nails it again in these 2,500 pages of excellent writing that cover a wealth of historical information. For these reasons, plus the fact that military events account for a large subset of general American history, this set is heartily recommended for public and academic libraries." - Library Journal, Starred Review "This is by far one of the best military chronologies available today and it deserves a place in most collections." - School Library Journal "For easily understandable and well-written conformity, undergraduates will profit by having Tucker's work available. Recommended." - Choice "This excellent set offers more comprehensive coverage and describes each event in greater detail than John Fredriksen's Chronology of American Military History (2010). Although other almanacs and chronologies devoted to specific wars expand on this set's coverage, this chronology will serve students well, especially in libraries that lack Fredriksen's or that require more granular detail." - Booklist
