About this title:

Synopsis: Originally published by Princeton University Press, this able, scholarly study explored many unknown aspects of the time during which the U.S. Army, largely neglected by the federal government, had to oppose European aggression and protect settlers on the frontier, despite its small, ill-paid staff and ill-clothed, ill-fed, and often ill-trained and ill-led soldiers. The work shows how the government and officers went about building the army, defining its powers, paying it, and eventually creating a military academy. Includes invaluable material on the roles of Harmar, St. Clair, Wayne, Wilkinson, Jefferson, and Dearborn as well as its early experiences involving the Louisiana Purchase and the War of 1812. Reprint edition. 2006: 433 pages. Softcover. (Scholar's Bookshelf

Review: ?Major Jacobs is clever in showing the impact of the personality and character of successive military leaders like Harmer, St. Clair, Wayne and Wilkinson.... The best history of the Army for the period he covers.?-New York Times
