Description
Examining factors that shape military service and military culture, Baker (modern European history, Wheaton College) explores life in the US armed forces as it has been experienced by millions of men, women, and children over the past 60 years. Starting with the enlistment process, she follows the military life cycle through career decisions, promotions, raising families, and retirement. Interweaving sources such as contemporary scholarship, government records, the media, and interviews with military personnel and family members, she discusses the impact of war on military society and the place of the armed forces in the US. She looks at how the values, traditions, and norms of the armed forces are articulated and shared, how they influence the individual and the institution, and what their role is in American society as a whole. The book will be of interest to general readers and students. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
