Had to get this book for an American Military History class. With all required textbooks, I was expecting your every day run of the mill regurgitated info, but this book proved all those notions wrong and is a pleasant read. There are lots of facts and history that are relatively obscure and the book goes back to the early 1600's. A very worthy book for people with a serious interest in American Military History.

For American Military History. No surprises there.

HOWEVER, be aware Kindle Fire users, that every page on this book will have to be resized so you can read the text. And if you load it on your Fire and then on a desktop so you can read it, that's as many devices as you can put it on. If you want to put it on a tablet so you can read it, you will have to uninstall it from one of the other devices and DEREGISTER the device. What that means is your Kindle (or any other device) won't be recognized as yours anymore by Amazon. It's not good enough for the publisher that you've removed it; you have to divorce your device from your account.

Not a happy college student. I will recommend that the instructor find a different book for his future classes.

I'm reading "American Military History" for a military history class. I do enjoy the book. It's a good survey of American military history. Accessing the book has been a real headache. I'm running Windows 8 and this book is not available on Kindle for Windows 8. Kindle for PC is unstable on Windows 8, and it keeps crashing, even in various compatibility modes. I am reading it on my Kindle Fire 8.9. It works fine on my kindle, but would be much easier to read on my laptop.

This is my textbook for American Military History. It is a very interesting subject and is completely unbiased in regards to how our military is portrayed. It doesn't discriminate against enemies and promote hero worship. It shows the side of America that many don't see in regular textbooks. It talks about how brutal we were to the Native Americans or how much we suffered when we invaded Mexico. It doesn't make the content nice and fluffy like those textbooks we had at younger ages that didn't tell the truth about Christopher Columbus, for example.

This book was actually less expensive that in my book store on campus. I have no complaints. It will serve the purpose I need it to in class.
