The West Point atlas of the Civil War by United States Military Academy( )

6 editions published in 1962 in English and Undetermined and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The maps and text of this volume are specially designed for the cadets of the United States Military Academy as an aid in their introductory studies of the American Civil War. For background information, material relating to the earlier American wars is presented in capsule form in the first sixteen maps. The conduct of every campaign is strongly influenced by the topography of the area involved. Frequently, this topography dictates the course of the action, and it often introduces significant hazards. An initial study of the ground over which the campaign or battle was fought--rivers, mountains, roads, railroads, vegetation--will prove most helpful in understanding the reasons for many of the actions. -- Introduction
The West Point atlas of American wars by United States Military Academy( )

9 editions published between 1959 and 1995 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his prefatory letter to the 1959 out-of-print first edition of this text for military personnel and historians, Dwight D. Eisenhower comments on the usefulness of studying prior campaigns in readiness for future ones. This edition updates this classic atlas, with numerous maps grounding its analysis of American involvement on all fronts in World War I--a war eclipsed in coverage by World War II and the Civil War. It also follows the development of military theory and practice from the prewar to League of Nations period. Includes a chronology of events, recommended reading list, but no index.

The Campaign in Poland, 1939 by United States Military Academy( Book )

6 editions published between 1941 and 1949 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poland, with the fifth largest army in Europe, was the first nation to feel the attack of the rejuvenated Nazi war machine. Because of later German conquests, the world has largely forgotten this initial success. Yet in one respect the rapid annihilation of the Polish Army was Germany's most important conquest. This campaign demonstrated to Germany, if not to the rest of the world, the correctness of her military doctrine. It furnished the proving ground for her organization and weapons. The rapidity of Poland's complete destruction came as a shocking surprise to the world at large. Eight days after the beginning of the war, all Polish forces were in demoralized retreat; and a month later, the entire fighting force of a million men had been annihilated. Military history offers no prior example of a conquest so rapid and complete. In this victory the new German air and mechanized forces played an unprecedented part. Nevertheless, it would be wrong to say that German success was due to these two arms alone. Simply stated, Germany's stupendous conquest may be attributed to the superiority of the entire German Army over the outmoded Polish war machine. Germany's balanced, well-trained, and ably led forces found no match in those of her smaller rival. This account of the campaign in Poland has been written for use in the instruction of cadets at the United States Military Academy. It is based for the most part on material prepared by the Military Intelligence Service, War Department. -- Abstract
