America's Wars

Alan Axelrod, Author John Wiley & Sons $40 (550p) ISBN 978-0-471-32797-4
While individually they're not the longest nor the best-remembered wars, conflicts with Native Americans, like the Iroquois-Huron War and the Seminole Wars, make up most of American military engagements. This becomes clear in popular historian Alan Axelrod's America's Wars, a reference guide to all the armed struggles of the United States. Major wars are outlined battle by battle, and Axelrod also describes the development of smaller campaigns like the 1846 Bear Flag Rebellion over control of California, the Philippine Insurrection and the recent engagements in Somalia and Kosovo.
