America Invaded: A State by State Guide to Fighting on American Soil
When you think of warfare on American soil, you probably think of the Civil War and little else. But don’t be fooled. Every state in the union has seen violence and bloodshed, whether it’s between Europeans and Native Americans, during border disputes both north and south, or even delivered via balloon by Japanese forces. America may be a young country, but it’s been a fighting country the whole time.
America Invaded explores the history of combat and warfare on American soil, covering everything from violence during the crossing of the Siberian land bridge all the way to terrorist attacks in the last few years. It’s a remarkably in-depth and well-researched tome, covering all 50 states, the capital, and even ships bearing the names of various states.
Even a devotee of American history is sure to learn something here. (I, for one, had no idea the Japanese balloon bombs made it as far inland as Michigan, Iowa, and North Dakota. That’s MADNESS.)
And at a time when we feel more divided than ever, this book is a worthwhile reminder of the times we fought together and of how we can learn from the times we fought ourselves. What an engrossing work of historical study.
