Booklist Review

This lavishly illustrated volume covers the U.S. Army's work since 9/11 in segments. The first embraces the immediate aftermath of 9/11. The second concerns the deployment to Afghanistan and overthrow of the Taliban. In conclusion, Berry and Steele follow Operation Iraqi Freedom from the buildup inuwait through the actual conduct of the action to the early stages of occupation. An appendix contains a brief, photographic directory of some equipment the army took into battle. The text is almost cursory, and it should surprise no one that it is pro-army and pro-war. The illustrations--all color photographs--constitute the book's greatest strength, for they cover a variety of equipment and American and Allied personnel, particularly in logistics, that the general media have given scant notice; and they allow one to draw conclusions on broader issues based on such shots as that of a female soldier hefting a sandbag. An unabashed visual salute to the army's work in the recent conflicts. --Roland Green Copyright 2004 Booklist
