Reviews
A Choice magazine Outstanding Academic Title selection

"Surrounded by Bellesiles' acerbic commentary, this is a useful, unsettling bottom-up history of America's wars that emphasizes the soldiers' mistreatment, suffering and injustice."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Bellesiles' most recent book explores the American army from the Revolution through Iraq and Afghanistan, using excerpts from letters, diaries and memoirs, recordings, and videos and blogs of soldiers in combat. . . . . This history is compact yet complete, and its narrative is excellent."
--Booklist
