“The best single volume I’ve found paying tribute to the American military is Don’t Tread on Me, a sweeping, fast-paced four-hundred-year history of America at war.”
—David Limbaugh, nationally syndicated columnist
“In witty and irreverent prose, author H. W. Crocker III provides a broad survey of America’s martial history. . . . Don’t Tread on Me deftly illuminates the full spectrum of America’s rich military traditions.”
—New York Sun
“A lively popular history of Americans at war. . . . [Don’t Tread on Me] fills gaps left by the grand narrative of American military history.”
“H. W. Crocker’s history of America’s wars is a rarity: a controversial and absorbing read about a crucial topic, the role that the military has played in shaping America’s past. I recommend it highly.”
Top Customer Reviews
(1) "Desert Storm" was not incorrectly labeled "Desert Saber." The fact is the book rightly says that "Desert Saber" was the land component of "Desert Storm."
(2) Chief Joseph was, in fact, bested by General Nelson Miles rather than General Oliver Howard. After all, Chief Joseph surrendered to Nelson Miles, and no one else.
Everyone is entitled to disagree with Crocker's POV, which is, after all, boldly challenging much conventional wisdom. But critics ought not resort to glaring errors in an attempt to point out purported mistakes. This book should be an important part of an open -- and honest -- conversation about our nation's historic legacy and America's place in the world.
