Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to.

In Chronology of American Military History Fredricksen gives us often highly detailed, sometimes  day-to-day accounts of wars, battles, and campaigns, often delving into obscure operations or events. But he also also covers legislation, technological innovations, exploratory expeditions, of which there were a surprising number, and more.
