American Military History intends to provide the United States Army—in particular, its young officers, NCOs, and cadets—with a comprehensive but brief account of its past. The Center of Mili¬tary History first published the book in 1956 as a textbook for senior ROTC courses. It has gone through a number of updates and revisions since, but the intent has remained the same. Support for military history education has always been a principal mission of the Center, and this new edition of an invaluable history furthers that purpose. 


 
The history of an active organization inevitably expands. The period since the Vietnam War, at which point the previous edition ended, has been significant for the Army, a busy period of expanding roles and missions and of fundamental organizational changes. In planning an update, it became clear that wedging this additional experience into the previous single-volume format would yield a cumber¬some book. Thus we are publishing this revised and expanded edition in two volumes.

 

This second volume takes up the story and extends it into the twenty-first century. The Ameri¬can Army faced the challenges of creating huge citizen armies and then transporting them across the Globe in World War I, World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. Then, in a sense returning to its roots, it transformed itself into a smaller, all-volunteer professional Army that has deployed to dozens of contingencies since the unsettling end of the Vietnam War. Throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first, the U.S. Army has continued to be an instrument of American power in the defense of freedom and American interests around the world. As it has evolved, the Army has under¬taken missions as diverse as humanitarian assistance, nation building, occupation, reconstruction, and peacekeeping. Today the Army, like the nation it serves, is committed to prosecuting the Global War on Terrorism in Iraq, Afghanistan, and throughout the World while fulfilling its essential home¬land security responsibilities. This is necessarily an evolving story. This second volume ends with the war in Iraq and against terrorism still under way, and the Center intends to revise and expand this volume in future years as the Army’s story continues to unfold.
