Towards an American army : military thought from Washington to Marshall by Russell Frank Weigley( Book )

17 editions published between 1962 and 2016 in English and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a history of controversies that have surrounded the growth of the United States Army, controversies that have flared over the inextricably related questions of how to attain maximum military security for the United States and how to form an army that will be appropriate to and not subversive of American democratic society. This book offers some measure of information on the attitudes and thought processes that have been traditional and habitual among American professional soldiers. Especially, it reveals something of their customary approach to issues of military policy where such issues merge with those of national policy in general. And to know something about the customary approach of military men to the broadest issues of military and national policy is also of manifest value to the present

3 editions published between 1956 and 1981 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Civil War, as in all our wars, it was the efforts of men who were soldiers by trade that guided and organized the military contributions of those who were soldiers only by temporary necessity; and among the professional military men who directed the supplying of the Union Army, M.C. Meigs stands in the first place. Few Union officers served so long in one key position; few served with such unvarying competence. This [dissertation] is a study of Meig's career, of his military service, of his relations with the political leaders of the day, and of the role of the corps he headed in transforming the despair of First Bull Run into the triumph of Appomattox"--Page 6
