According to the book description of Milestones of the First Century of Flight, “The history of human flight, both within and outside Earth's atmosphere, is rich with remarkable achievements. From the vision of aviation pioneers, designers and engineers, financial backers, and government agencies, an entirely new field of science and technology was created, with an unprecedented impact on the world's population. In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ 1903 flight, Milestones of the First Century of Flight chronicles the 100 most significant achievements in aviation, with more than 200 black-and-white and color photos.”

 

Booklist said of United States Army at War: 9/11 through Iraq, “This lavishly illustrated volume covers the U.S. Army's work since 9/11 in segments. The first embraces the immediate aftermath of 9/11. The second concerns the deployment to Afghanistan and overthrow of the Taliban. In conclusion, Berry and Steele follow Operation Iraqi Freedom from the buildup in Kuwait through the actual conduct of the action to the early stages of occupation. An appendix contains a brief, photographic directory of some equipment the army took into battle. The text is almost cursory, and it should surprise no one that it is pro-army and pro-war. The illustrations--all color photographs--constitute the book's greatest strength, for they cover a variety of equipment and American and Allied personnel, particularly in logistics, that the general media have given scant notice; and they allow one to draw conclusions on broader issues based on such shots as that of a female soldier hefting a sandbag. An unabashed visual salute to the army's work in the recent conflicts.”

According to the book description Medics at War: Military Medicine from Colonial Times to the 21st Century, is “Filled with more than 150 color and black-and-white illustrations, this handsome large-format book celebrates frontline medical personnel and the critical role they have played in the success of U.S. armed forces, from the battles of Lexington and Concord in colonial times to the recent battles in Iraq and Afghanistan. The narrative and photographs cover all the links in the military medical chain, beginning with ensuring good health for individual service members to caring for combat casualties and seeing to their return to health.

 

The book focuses on individual medics who serve with frontline units saving lives and moving casualties from the battle to definitive medical care. Readers accompany the medics and their patients from aid stations to combat support hospitals and air transportable hospitals to hospital ships and high-level medical centers. From horse-drawn ambulances to today’s advanced medevac helicopters and aeromedical evacuation airplanes, the means of evacuating casualties from the battle has evolved dramatically, but the intent remains unchanged. Other important elements this book calls attention to are the military medical innovations that have improved the health of the armed forces—and the civilian population as well. This book is published with the cooperation of the Association of the United States Army.”

One reader of CNN War in the Gulf said, “After offering an unprecedented amount of live coverage of the first Gulf War, Cable Network News (CNN) commissioned Thomas Allen, Clifton Berry, and Norman Polmar to write a hasty history immediately following the conclusion of combat in 1991. The result is "War in the Gulf', a first take that has both the sense of immediacy and the shortcomings of being too close in time to the described event.

 

The authors, all experienced in defense affairs, had access to the large volume of reporting conducted by CNN between August 1990 and February 1991. As is common for current news, this reporting was typically incomplete and lacked perspective. That said, "War in the Gulf" provides a good running commentary about the preparation and conduct of Operations DESERT SHIELD and DESERT STORM. It comes with a healthy collection of photographs and graphics that help illuminate the conflict for the general reader. Its best use may be as a capture of what was understood at the time about the First Gulf War.”
