Résumé:

"Don't Tread on Me is a sweeping, colorful--and controversial--history of America's wars and foreign and military policy over the past four hundred years. Full of gripping battle scenes and contrarian arguments, this stirring book challenges Americans to rethink what they thought they knew about our nation at war."--Publisher's website.

Analyzes the wars, military campaigns, and foreign and military policy of the United States from its inception to the present day, and argues that the problems confronting the U.S. in the war on terror are the result of political failures rather than military ones.
