Item description for The Power & the Glory: An Illustrated History of the U.S. Military by Editors of Life Magazine...

LIFE brings you the illustrated history of the U.S. Military with a stirring introduction by the heroic war veteran Senator Bob Dole. Here is the story of the American Military in pictures, from George Washington's Continental Army to the ground troops in Afghanistan, from John Paul Jones and the Bonhomme Richard to the deck of the USS Eisenhower stationed in the Gulf. The action photography is here Robert Capa's famous images from the Normandy beaches, June 6, 1944 and some surprises as well (Alfred Eisenstaedt's marvelous photo essay on West Point from LIFE's second-ever issue, re-run here on the occasion of the Academy's 200th birthday). The histories of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines are detailed, and the heroes are profiled. The spirit is stirred in this LIFE book.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Power & the Glory: An Illustrated History of the U.S. Military?

A photo history of the US armed forces.  Oct 7, 2006
The pictures are great but there is not much meat in this book. The book looks at the four branches of the US Armed Forces. It gives a short four page discription of each service, plus an introduction by Bob Dole. The photos are great, as you would expect. However, this is like lite beer, there is not much here.

If you want to look at great pictures, this book may be looked at in the library. If you want more, look elsewhere.
