Between 1890 and 1920 the US Army was transformed from a small force of men, still wearing traditional blue, whose primary weapon was the single-shot rifle, into a formidable army dressed in khaki combat uniforms, using automatic weapons, tanks and aircraft to fight enemies on battlefields across the world. This book details the Army’s developments during its involvement in the Spanish-American War (1898), the Boxer Rebellion (1898-1901), and World War I (1914-1918). Particular attention is given to the evolution of the Army’s uniforms, which are illustrated, using drawings and photographs, throughout the book.
