Item description for TIME Goes to War by Editors of Time Magazine...
Truth is the first casualty of war," said Napoleon - but then, he lived before TIME Magazine. Now TIME tells the true story of America at war a story that encompasses not only the soldiers at the front, but also the armies of unsung men and women who prepare them for battle. Here, from World War II through Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf War, is the story of war as it affects all Americans. You'll join TIME reporters at the front in the hedgerows of France, the rice paddies of Vietnam, the deserts of Kuwait. You'll join those fighting against a new kind of enemy: the faceless terrorists who have plunged us into a new kind of war. You'll meet indelible leaders, little remembered by today's Americans: "Bull" Halsey, Matthew Ridgeway, "Vinegar Joe" Stilweel. You'll trace war's galvanizing effect on the home front, from bond drives to victory gardens. Above all, you'll meet the G.I.s and "grunts," the chaplains and cooks, the surgeons and nurses who find their finest! hour when America Goes to War.

Some Time articles about wars. Jun 10, 2006
This is an OK read. The thing that stands out on this book is the photos. Time and other magazines always excell at having great pictures. The articles that were taken from old Time magazines leave a lot to be desired. The reader can see the inaccuracies at the time these articles were written. For example, the optimism of U.S. leaders after the intervention of ground troops in Vietnam in 1965. If you are looking for history, look elsewhere. If you want to scan the pictures, this is an OK book.
Unfortunately more and more of our weekly publications are going for these quick sources of income. Little thought may be made in the input to these books. An OK read, but for more detail, read elsewhere.
