From the first battle at Lexington Green in 1775 that started the Revolutionary War to the on-going War Against Terrorism, the American Infantry Soldier has stood courageously to fight toe-to-toe against the enemies of freedom and our way of life. Battle is up close and very personal to the Infantryman in a way that no other Soldier must face. Forged in the fires of revolution, tested on continental battlefields, battered at the shores of Normandy, fought through frozen ridgelines and jungle swamps, and hardened on the sands of the Persian Gulf, for over 230 years the Infantryman has honored his non-negotiable contract with the American people to fight and win the nation's wars.

Written by an outstanding team, including historians, and distinguished retired Army officers, U.S. Army Infantry has over 350 pages of riveting and informative text and stories of the Infantry experience. Essays on the Infantry's history and today's soldiers focus not only on the weapons, but especially on the people—the Infantry Soldier—that make it all work. The thoughtful incorporation of full-color and vintage photography, portraits, recruiting posters, and historically inspired paintings complements the text while adding the excitement that only spectacular illustrations can bring to a book.

U.S. Army Infantry enables the history of America's Soldiers to be cherished permanently in a handsome package that every soldier will be proud to own and—with its unique medallion-inlaid cover—to display. This book will be read again and again by past and present soldiers, their families and friends, and the countless others that have been inspired by the exploits of the Infantry.
