9780142004654: America's Splendid Little Wars: A Short History of U.S. Engagements from the Fall of Saigonto Baghdad

From the evacuation of Saigon in 1975 to the end of the twentieth century, the United States committed its forces to more than a dozen military operations. Offering a fresh analysis of the Iranian hostage rescue attempt, the invasions of Granada and Panama, the first Gulf War, the missions in Somalia and Bosnia, and more, author and distinguished U.S. naval captain Peter Huchthausen presents a detailed history of each military engagement through eyewitness accounts, exhaustive research, and his unique insider perspective as an intelligence expert. This timely and riveting military history is “a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the nature of war today” (Stephen Trent Smith).

About the Author:

Captain Peter Huchthausen, U.S. Navy (Ret.), served as a Soviet naval analyst and submarine expert, and as a naval attaché in Yugoslavia, Romania, and Moscow. His many tours of duty included serving as a watch officer during the blockade of Cuba in 1962 and as commander of a patrol division on Vietnam's Mekong Delta in 1967. In addition to his writing, he is a consultant, most recently on the film K-19: The Widowmaker.

Review:

In clean and economic prose, Captain Huchthausen delivers a concise narrative of the action. -- The New York Times Book Review
