Black valor : buffalo soldiers and the Medal of Honor, 1870-1898 by Frank N Schubert( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 1,144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They were U.S. army officers. Just a few years earlier, some had been slaves. Several thousand African Americans served as soldiers in the Indian Wars and in the Cuban campaign of the Spanish-American War in the latter part of the nineteenth century. They were known as buffalo soldiers, believed to have been named by Indians who had seen a similarity between the coarse hair and dark skin of the soldiers and the coats of the buffalo. Twenty-three of these men won the nation's highest award for personal bravery, the Medal of Honor. Their remarkable stories-derived from extensive historical research-are told in this collected biography. Black Valor will enrich and inspire readers

The whirlwind war : the United States Army in operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides an overview of the U.S. Army's role in the coalition force arrayed against Iraq during the Persian Gulf War in 1990-1991. The authors describe how the Vietnam-era Army transformed itself into a small, superbly equipped, highly skilled, well-trained, and extremely mobile force, composed of units from both the active and reserve components. In this major test the Army clearly demonstrated that it could project its power effectively and operate as part of a multinational force with great success. Although not definitive, this work records a pivotal chapter in the Army's history by describing the various strands that came together to produce the Army of the 1990s and by capturing how that Army in turn performed under fire and in the glare of world attention
Building air bases in the Negev : the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Israel, 1979-1982 by Frank N Schubert( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building Air Bases in the Negev is a remarkable story of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' role supporting national diplomatic initiatives overseas while managing a major construction project in Israel. Frank N. Schubert has written a superbly organized account, tracing from the spring of 1979 to the summer of 1982 the development and completion of two ultramodern air bases at a cost that only exceeded original estimates by less than 3 percent. As Schubert suggests, the air base program helped bring peace between two long-term antagonists--Israel and Egypt. Schubert's work serves as an important case study for analyzing not only engineering project management and construction practices but also demanding sociopolitical, cultural, and business conditions in sovereign foreign lands

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of Fort Robinson, Nebraska is much more than a record of battles.

Divided by military rank and traditions and sometimes by race, those parts of the community had their own social lives and problems as well as different relations with the nearby town of Crawford

6 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book marks an important anniversary in the history of our development as a nation. In 1838 Congress established the Corps of Topographical Engineers, an organization whose main purpose was the peacetime fostering of economic growth and national cohesion. This small dedicated group of officers contributed to the development of many aspects of the national transportation network-railroads, highways, and inland waterways. They provided maps for overland travelers and charts for navigators on our Great Lakes. By the time that the organization was abolished during the Civil War, it had played a major part in a period of dramatic development aptly characterized by one historian as a transportation revolution

Other than war : the American military experience and operations in the post-Cold War decade by Frank N Schubert( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The period from the end of the Cold War in 1989-1991 to the attacks on the United States by terrorists on 11 September 2001 spanned little more than a decade. American military operations during that time ranged the globe and included peace operations, humanitarian expeditions of various kinds, and counter-drug efforts. Carried out without the coherent framework provided by the Cold War, the missions of the 1990s were many, diverse, and diffuse, characteristics that sometimes created an impression of heavy activity, even overwork. The common thread among these post-Cold War missions, from the intervention in Panama during December 1989 to soldiers and Marines fighting forest fires in the western United States in the summer of 2000, was that they rarely resembled conventional warfare
