Since its creation, the United States seems to have pushed the accelerator in the invasion category. This book sets out to find the facts. How many countries has America been militarily involved with, and what's it been doing in all these countries? It's an amazing story with quite a few surprises, and has huge implications for both Britain and the rest of the world in the twenty-first century.
In this book, you'll read about:
How the US, almost as soon as it came into existence, invaded the UK.
How American `Polar Bears' invaded Russia.
The Pig War, the Watermelon War, the Tuna War and the Pastry War.
The only three countries with which America has had no military involvement.
