COMBAT CULTURE: In his book “The American Culture of War: A History of U.S. Military Force from World War II to Operation Iraqi Freedom,” Adrian Lewis, professor of history and director of the Office of Professional Military Graduate Education, offers a critical examination of every American war since 1941. Lewis examines cultural forces surrounding each conflict, including both the first and second Persian Gulf Wars. He offers a look at the motives of the government and people waging the war, flawed political policies that guided military strategy and civilian perceptions of each war. Lewis outlines the evolution of American military strategy since World War II through Korea, Vietnam and the Gulf Wars. The book is available at Jayhawk Ink in the Kansas Union.
