Overview
"A superb book--an American equivalent to John Keegan's The Face of Battle. I sincerely believe that Grunts is destined to be a classic."--Dave Grossman, Author of On Killing and On Combat

From the acclaimed author of The Dead and Those About to Die comes a sweeping narrative of six decades of combat, and an eye-opening account of the evolution of the American infantry.

From the beaches of Normandy and the South Pacific Islands to the deserts of the Middle East, the American soldier has been the most indispensable--and most overlooked--factor in wartime victory. In Grunts, renowned historian John C. McManus examines ten critical battles--from Hitler's massive assault on U.S. soldiers at the Battle of the Bulge to counterinsurgency combat in Iraq--where the skills and courage of American troops proved the crucial difference between victory and defeat.

Based on years of research and interviews with veterans, this powerful history reveals the ugly face of war in a way few books have, and demonstrates the fundamental, and too often forgotten, importance of the human element in serving and protecting the nation.
