How have military actions shaped the history of the United States and the country's role in world history? Noted military historian Jeremy Black examines American military exceptionalism with the critical eye of a foreign scholar. The British fought two wars with the Americans and followed American developments with keen interest. Black marshals contemporary British commentary to contextualize American military actions within a global perspective.

Several major conflicts are covered:^L^DBLThe War for Independence^DBLThe War of 1812^DBLThe Mexican War^DBLWar with Native Americans^DBLThe Civil War^LThroughout this phase of America military action, one sees a shift from a state in conflict with neighboring states to a nation divided, fighting for its very survival. This study clarifies the unique combination of political, social, intellectual, and physical factors-including potential threats-that shaped, and were shaped, by the general American culture during this period.

"Black demonstrates impressive command of the literature in this well-crafted survey demonstrating the central role of conflict in the first century of America's history as an independent country. He establishes the similarities between U.S. ways of war and general developments in the Western World, while simultaneously demonstrating the exceptionalism that reflected America's distinctive political and social character."-Dennis Showalter Colorado College

"Jeremy Black, one of the giants of European military history, has brought his incisive mind to the subject of American military history from the Revolutionary War through the Civil War. In so doing he has brought a European perspective to military events in North America that is both refreshing and insightful. This is more than a summary of events; it is a deep and penetrating examination of what made the American experience unique and what put it firmly in the Western tradition."-Williamson Murray Professor Emeritus Ohio State University
