Summary, etc.:
"From the American Revolution to the conflict in Iraq, from the steaming jungles of Asia to Europe's frozen fields, Native Americans have fought for this country in every war the U.S. military has ever waged. Driven by the singular honors reserved by many tribal groups for those who show bravery in battle, they have sustained a proud warrior tradition-- and made key contributions on critical fronts. Their unforgettable stories encompass heroism and tragedy, humor and stoicism, loyalty and conflict-- all part of the remarkable experience of Warriors in uniform"--Dust jacket.
