Camp Colt to Desert Storm: The History of U.S. Armed Forces book
The tank revolutionized the battlefield in World War II. In the years since, additional technological developments--including nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, computer assisted firing, and satellite navigation--have continued to transform the face of combat. The only complete history of U.S. armed forces from the advent of the tank in battle during World War I to the campaign to drive Iraq out of Kuwait in 1991, Camp Colt to Desert Storm traces the development of doctrine for operations at the tactical and operational levels of war and translates this fighting doctrine into the development of equipment. George F. Hofmann, associate professor of history at the University of Cincinnati, served in the U.S. Army (Armor). Donn A. Starry is the principal architect of AirLand Battle doctrine, which was used so successfully in the Gulf War.
