A chronological examination of U.S. involvement in wars from Revolutionary times through the post-Cold War conflicts (including Iraq). Essays have been gleaned from nine other Salem resources and new material has been added. The set is arranged chronologically and each section covering a specific conflict begins with ready reference information listing combatants and noting what was at stake, the location, the major figures involved, and the outcome. Each segment ends with a time line and a list for further reading. In between is a collection of clear and concise articles (39 essays in all for World War II alone) on specific battles, weapons, womens roles, and censorship during the conflict and concludes with a cumulative subject index as well as a name index, a complete time line of U.S. wars and battles, and brief biographies. Scattered throughout are average-quality, black-and-white captioned photos and reproductions; a number lack adequate contrast. There are also some small, simple maps. Information is easy to find, easy to read, and organized to help students make connections. Useful for reports as well as general interest.
