America's Armed Services are Under Attack. Our military's successes in the War on Terror have been minimized, and the Iraq theater's challenges have caused many to declare this an unwinnable war. The Army is described as "broken", and our men and women in uniform are maligned as torturers. Antiwar activists use Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo as clubs to beat the very men and women who voluntarily risk their lives defending their right to free speech. These critics of our military fail to understand its real nature. By seeing everything through the distorted lens of Vietnam - a war shrouded in harmful myths - they have lost sight of our country's real military record and the factors that have enabled us to win with remarkable consistency - and why it will win this curent conflict. In America's Victories, Professor Larry Schweikart restores the truth about our amazing military heritage. Just as he did in his acclaimed previous book, A Patriot's History of the United States, Professor Schweikart cuts through the distortions passed along by academia and the media. Book jacket.
