About the Book

From the Continental Army to the modern day…

Over 1,400 photographs and paintings.

Established for the common defense of the thirteen colonies by the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1775, the United States Army is older than the United States.

Much has changed over the last 244 years, not least that America's military, which until the 'Cold War' was quite small during peacetime, is now the largest, best trained, and best equipped in the world.

But what defines an army is its esprit de corps, traditions, and discipline. Many of today's units can trace their lineage to the Civil War and, indeed, the Revolution, and the U.S. Army remains as ever an army of committed “citizen soldiers.”

Now Easton Press is proud to present the lavishly illustrated chronicle: UNITED STATES ARMY: The Definitive Illustrated History, a magnificent Collector's Edition bound in leather and accented with 22kt gold.

America's Army from before the Revolution to the 21st Century.

Written by award-winning author and former editor of the U.S. Army's Military Review, D.M. Giangreco, UNITED STATES ARMY: The Definitive Illustrated History is an authoritative and comprehensive overview of the Army's two and half century development and combat history.

From the first battles with Native Americans and the War of Independence to the 'War on Terror' and the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, Giangreco's eloquent survey examines the victories, defeats, bravery, and commitment to democracy that have shaped the U.S. Army.

UNITED STATES ARMY: The Definitive Illustrated History brings the story of the American army to life with over 1,400 illustrations, images that include period paintings and drawings of battle action and soldiers, reproductions of maps and recruiting posters, and beautiful new full-color photographs of uniforms, armaments, and other equipment and artifacts.

Featuring appendices that examine medals, decorations, insignia, and citations, UNITED STATES ARMY: The Definitive Illustrated History is an essential volume for any devotee of American history or the United States Army.
