From the first battle at Lexington Green in 1775 that started the Revolutionary War to the ongoing war against terrorism, the American Infantry Soldier has fought courageously to preserve the freedoms and liberty of the American people. Forged in the fires of revolution, tested on continental battlefields, battered at the shores of Normandy, and hardened on the sands of the Persian Gulf, for more than 230 years the infantryman has honored his "non-negotiable contract" to fight and win the nation's wars. Written by an outstanding team, including historians, and distinguished retired Army officers, U.S. Army Infantry presents stories of the infantry experience as well as the legendary heroes of its ranks. Essays on the infantry's history and today's soldiers focus in particular on the people--the infantry soldiers--who fight the battles. Full-color and vintage photography, portraits, recruiting posters, and historically inspired paintings breathe life into their stories.
