Comments: From The Macmillan Wars of the United States series, which began in 1967 and was edited by Dr. Louis Morton of Dartmouth University. Scholars consider some of these works to be the best single volume histories of the relevant conflict in print. Highlights include: The War of American Independence by Don Higginbotham, Arms for Empire by Douglas Leach, President Wilson Fights His War by Harvey DeWeerd and Blood on the Border by Clarence Clendenen.
