American Military History explores a new ideological worldview of American military. Advocates of various social changes desiring acceptance use the military as a vehicle for expression at the beckoning of the president. Without question, the American military has opened doors for those left outside the mainstream of public education. A long tradition of servant-leadership has produced a system demonstrating excellence in education and in many ways continuing the servant leader tradition of leadership by trial.
In telling the story of America’s rise to military greatness, American Military History:
- Is Engaging! With thought questions at the end of each chapter, students will be encouraged to participate for deeper thought and understanding.
- Is Visual! With detailed images and timelines throughout, it is clear when, where, and how certain events took place.
- Is Pragmatic! With call-outs of different, prominent military individuals, students can extend their knowledge of history and those who shaped it.
