Summary

Summary

Six authors offer articles designed to provide the key facts about each of the 26 US military conflicts that the authors consider to be wars. For each conflict, the contributor lists the dates and alternate names, provides a brief bibliography, and discusses such topics as the conflict's significance and causes, the declaration of war, the combatants who made up the opposing forces, geographic and strategic considerations, the battles and campaigns, negotiations and the peace treaty, the war's results, and historical perspectives.
