Now in paperback, Between War and Peace is “a set of essays devoted to the shadowy ground on which the guns have ceased their roar, but could resume at any moment” ( Kirkus Reviews ).
As the United States attempts to extricate itself from two long and costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, nothing could be more vital than a thorough examination of the way America has ended its major conflicts in the past.
As it fills an important gap in military history, Between War and Peace is bound to be a pillar of military academy and college curricula. The book presents fifteen essays by leading American historians, each of which deals in fascinating detail with the aims of these wars, their predominant strategies, their final campaigns, the course and causes of termination, and their ramifications for the nation’s future. Taken together, they will be a groundbreaking addition to the canon of military history.
A formidable, collaborative effort that illuminates the past in ways that will help us understand our troubled present, Between War and Peace takes readers inside some of American history’s most important turning points.
