Author Name    Laffin, John.

Title   AMERICANS IN BATTLE.

Publisher    J.M. Dent, London, (1973), 1st edition.

Seller ID   16349

213 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0460039849 B&w plates. "This study of the American fighting man, of all ranks and in all services ranges from the War of Independence to Vietnam to Pinkville. Part One provides graphic accounts of all the major and many of the minor conflicts in American history, with close-ups of the man in the line of battle - from the victory over the British at New Orleans in 1814, the American Civil War, the gruelling battles with the Indians, to World War I and World War II. Part Two studies the psychology of the American fighting man and points out the strange contrasts and contradictions in his mental and emotional make-up...Finally, the system that produces the American soldier today is closely examined - his role as the instrument of the 'Great Defender' all over the world, the scientific revolution and the attitudes of the commanding generals." Minor soiling to edges of textblock. Dust jacket has moderate edge wear, a few tiny tears, one 1/2" tear with crease, moderate rubbing on rear panel - light elsewhere, light edge wrinkling. VG+/G+
