The Role of Federal Military Forces in Domestic Disorders, 1877-1945
This work encompasses a tumultuous era, the rise of industrial America with attendant social dislocation and strife. It begins with the first major U.S. Army intervention in a labor dispute, the Great Railway Strike of 1877, and concludes with War Dept. seizures of strike-plagued industries during World War II. The evolution of the Army's role in domestic support operations, its strict adherence to law, and the disciplined manner in which it conducted these difficult and often unpopular operations are major themes of this volume. Includes a bibliography, 6 maps, and dozens of illustrations.
