Americas Splendid Little Wars: A Short History of U.S. Military Engagements: 1975-2000 by Peter Huchthausen

Since the evacuation of Saigon in 1975, America has committed its forces to combat in more than a dozen military operations. In Americas Splendid Little Wars, distinguished U.S. Naval Captain Peter Huchthausen explores the modern development of Americas tradition of small wars. From the 1975 operation to recover the hijacked merchant ship SS Mayaguez in the Gulf of Siam to the 1999 relief intervention in Kosovo, Huchthausen presents an intimate history of each military engagement. Through eyewitness accounts, thorough research, and his unique insider perspective as an intelligence expert, he offers a fresh analysis of the Iranian hostage rescue attempt, the invasions of Grenada and Panama, the Gulf War, and the missions in Somalia and Bosnia. This timely and riveting military history shows how America-now the worlds sole remaining superpower-has enforced the global Pax Americana by developing and honing its military capability and making sophisticated use of the media and public sentiment.
