Introduction by President Dwight D Eisenhower: From the slipcase: "Here, for the first time, is a definitive, comprehensive, and fully Illustrated military history of every major war in which the United States has participated. Prepared by the Department of Military Art and Engineering of the United States Military Academy, The West Point Atlas of American wars employs the basic materials of the famous course given to cadets at West Point, materials that have never before been available to the general public. More than 400 three color and four color maps portray the details of every important battle in American history, 158 maps in Volume 1 cover every campaign in the Colonial and Revolutionary Wars, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Civil War, and the Spanish-American War. Volume 2 contains 71 maps on World War I, 170 on World War II, and 15 on the UN action in Korea. Despite its title, The Atlas does much more than simply consider those battles in which American troops were involved. Each war is treated in its entirety, so that, for example, the majority of World War 1 maps are actually concerned with events prior to American entry into the conflict. These maps are completely unique in concept and treatment. Rather than merely representing static situations, they are dynamic depictions of the movements of forces from day-to-day and sometimes from hour to hour. The reader is thus able to follow easily the entire course of a campaign or battle in detail, without any loss in overall continuity. Supplementing the maps are more than 250,000 words of descriptive text. The technique used to combine text and maps in these two volumes is revolutionary in the field of military writing. Contrary to the usual practice, the theme is developed in the maps, while the narrative further explains and comments on the situation pictured. Corresponding maps and texts have been placed side-by-side in order to achieve maximum ease and efficiency of use. Moreover, the narrative has been carefully edited with the special needs of the reader in mind. Wherever necessary, the text furnishes direction signals that facilitate speedy location of references on the maps. This combination of graphic maps with precise and clear text results in a lucid and concise history of each war.". Seller Inventory # 41916
