From the Back Cover:

Through more than 60 scholarly essays, A Companion to American Military History presents a comprehensive analysis of the historiography of United States military events and experiences from the colonial era to the present. Including contributions from both eminent military historians and emerging scholars, the essays address every American war from the Indian and imperial conflicts of the seventeenth century to the current battles in Afghanistan and Iraq. All branches of the armed services are covered, including the Continental and Confederate States of America armies, navies, and marine corps, the Coast Guard, militia, National Guard, and reserve forces.

Also addressed are America's military operations short of declared war in Latin America and Asia; military occupations following the Civil War and World War II; the domestic use of armed services; military subspecialties and institutions; alliances, coalitions, and assistance missions; and many others. Especially noteworthy is the inclusion of essays focusing on under-studied topics, such as the military use of photography and music, roles of veterans groups, care for the dead, the military and sports, and issues of war and memory.

Reflecting the vigorous state of contemporary scholarship, A Companion to American Military History reveals the full breadth of military influences and experiences that have helped shape the character and culture of American society.
