BeschreibungFollowing World War II, Americans expected that the US would wage another major war against a superpower. Instead, the nation has fought limited wars against much weaker states. This edition analyzes the means by which four presidents have taken the nation to war and assesses the effectiveness of each president's leadership during those conflicts.
