Although World War II has been the backdrop for most of his writing, America's foremost historian, Stephen E. Ambrose, takes the reader to the heart of America's other wars, from Grant's stunning Fourth of July victory at Vicksburg, to Nixon's surprise Christmas bombing of Hanoi. Ambrose brings to life the ambition and charisma that led to Custer's great success in the Civil War and fateful disaster at Little Big Horn. Drawn to the experiences of those who have gone to war, both the leaders and the led, Ambrose puts you on the beaches of Normandy with the common footsoldier and in the headquarters of America's great commanders, Eisenhower, Patton and MacArthur. He concludes with a hypothesis of what war, devoid of ideology, may be like in the twenty-first century.
