"In 1790 the regular American Army numbered 80 enlisted men. Their basic weapon was the flintlock musket. Today the regular U. S. Army numbers in the millions, and its weapons are many and lethal including the deadly hydrogen bomb. In this brilliant and timely book, Walter Millis, famous military historian, dramatically reveals the course of American military affairs and the men who helped shape it. His cogent view of U. S. military problems in their social and political setting makes an important and exciting book."; previous owner's name on pre-title page but otherwise a clean & tight copy; including notes on sources & index - 342 pages.
