Summary, etc.: Written by an outstanding team, The Army has over 350 pages of riveting and informative text and stories of the Army experience. Essays on U.S. Army history and today's soldiers focus not only on the tanks, helicopters, vehicles, and weapons, but especially on the people 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.
