From the American Revolution to the Gulf War, The Encyclopedia of the United States at War chronicles the history of our country's involvement in armed conflict. War is not all battles and weapons and uniforms; its roots begin to grow many years before the first shot is fired. War is the agonizing decision by our political leaders to risk lives to protect the country's interests. War is every story of every person who gives his or her life in the service of their country. And war continues to affect people and nations for years after peace is attained.
