The U.S. Army is our oldest military force, and this exciting volume explores its rich history. Established in 1775 and led by General George Washington, the Continental army was formed to fight the British. Throughout U.S. history, many other notable men served in the army, including Presidents Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. More than 230 years later, the U.S. Army is considered one of the most powerful forces in the world. In addition to protecting U.S. citizens during times of war across the globe, the U.S. Army also comes to the aid of the victims of disasters. The informative text is paired with both modern photographs and historic images.
