Editorial Reviews

Review

A fresh look at how America's leaders have used military force historically and what that may mean for the future, this book should be of interest to military practitioners and policymakers, students and scholars of military history and security studies, and general readers interested in military history and the future of military power.

--Lieutenant Colonel Brian L. Steed, US Army "2015 Univeristy Press Books for Public and Secondary Schools"

Antulio Echevarria II has written an excellent book for historians, military professionals, and others with a good grasp of the history of America's wars. However, his concise survey of over two hundred years of American military strategy and operations will also be useful in college courses.

--Lieutenant Colonel Brian L. Steed, US Army "Michigan War Studies Review"

Asserts quite convincingly that what people actually did is at least as important and instructive as what they thought or said.

--US Military History Review "Robert S. Ehlers, Jr."

Issues a powerful challenge to established thinking on all fronts. . . . Echevarria's book represents an important contribution to the debate over the American way of war.

--US Military History Review "Political Science Quarterly"

It is the best synthesis of the American way of war discourse to date and a must-read for students, scholars, service personnel, and government officials interested in military history.

--Brian McAllister Linn, Ralph R. Thomas Professor of Liberal Arts, Texas A&M University "On Point"

Makes a material contribution to the long-standing debate about strategic culture.

--US Military History Review "Naval War College Review"

Provides a valuable counterpoint to a topic relevant to current debates about American strategy and policy. It is always beneficial to understand clearly from whence one comes before determining where one ought to go.

--Lieutenant Colonel Brian L. Steed, US Army "Proceedings"

Provides valuable synopses of the most important campaigns and explains what they reveal about developments in military practice, demonstrating the variety of ways in which US leaders have adapted their approaches to military force to fit the circumstances.

--US Military History Review "Foreign Affairs"

Reconsidering the American Way of War is a thoughtful, rich, and convincing examination of how and why the United States has used military force to accomplish national objectives throughout its history. Echevarria dismantles the various proponents of a unique American 'way of war' by proving that US military practice has always been shaped by the politics of the moment. His thesis that there is no unifying theory is refreshing in its clarity and rife with strategic and operational implications. This book demands attention; a must-read for military officers, politicians, academics--and pundits--who all too often ignore the inherently pragmatic nature of the American approach to war in their attempts to shape the policy debate.

--David E. Johnson, director, chief of staff of the Army Strategic Studies Group and author of Fast Tanks and Heavy Bombers: Innovation in the U.S. Army, 1917-1945 and Hard Fighting: Israel in Lebanon and Gaza
