The American Way of War: A History of United States Military Strategy and Policy

Front Cover
Indiana University Press, 1977 - History - 584 pages

" . . . a strong and stimulating book. It has no rival in either scope or quality. For libraries, history buffs, and armchair warriors, it is a must. For political science students, career diplomats, and officers in the armed services, its reading should be required." --History

"A particularly timely account." --Kansas City Times

"It reads easily but is not a popularized history . . . nor does the book become a history of battles. . . . Weigley's analyses and interpretations are searching, competent, and useful." --Perspective
