cover image In 1775, determined and angry colonists took up arms against a common foe, and their battle cries signaled the birth of the United States Army. The Army has been forged in the fires of revolution, tested on continental battlefields, battered at the shores of Normandy, and hardened on the sands of the Persian Gulf and Iraq. From its first stand at Lexington, the Army has always had a non-negotiable contract with the American people to fight and win the nation's wars. Now, over 225 years after the founding of the Continental Army and over 400 years since the first colonial militia was formed in St. Augustine, Florida, in 1565, the spirit and essence of the United States Army is celebrated for the first time in a definitive, magnificently illustrated, large format chronology published with the Army Historical Foundation.

At nearly 1,000 pages, U.S. Army: A Complete History is the definitive chronology on the Army‹serving as both a reference tool and a handsome addition to any military history collection. Building upon the official Army chronologies, this book presents a year-by year and day-by-day summary of significant Army activities, from the early Colonies and the French and Indian War to Operation Iraqi Freedom. Key historical entries, as well as significant operations, technological advances, and the people instrumental in shaping the Army, are treated as expanded sidebar articles, written by leading historians in each subject. Treating these elements in detail will help bring this encyclopedic account of Army history to life.

U.S. Army: A Complete History enables the history of the Army to be cherished permanently in a handsome package that every soldier will be proud to own and—with its unique cover—to display. This book will be read again and again by past and present Army personnel, their families and friends, students of military history, and the countless others that have been inspired by the United States Army.
