Description
An associate professor of military history and the official historian for the 7th Infantry Regiment Association, John McManus follows up his earlier book The 7th Infantry Regiment: Combat in an Age of Terror, the Korean War through the Present with this fine prequel, completing a thorough 200-year history of this exemplary U.S. Army force. Here McManus chonicles the 7th—the only regiment to have served in every war since 1812—from the Battle of New Orleans (where they earned their nickname "Cottonbalers" by fighting the British from a breastwork of cotton bales) through the end of World War II.

"[The regiment's] World War I experience justifies carnage in the title of this book, and then came World War II. In that conflict, the regiment's path wound from North Africa to Hitler's hideaway at Berchtesgaden by way of Sicily, Italy, and southern France. McManus has researched exhaustively but does not make the book exhausting, and he shows a fine hand in descriptions of infantry combat extending over more than a century and a quarter. Far better than average military history, this is for most American libraries."—Booklist
