Whatever you think of it, the United States is a superpower that has loomed large over the twentieth century and the beginning of the twenty-first century. Its actions around the world have affected not just Americans, but citizens of every nation in the world, and in some sense, none more so than citizens of the UK, one of America's oldest friends. A lot of people have said a lot of things, some supportive, some a lot less so, about what the US has done militarily around the world. This book sets out to find the facts. How many countries HAS the US actually invaded? How many countries has it been militarily involved with? What's it been doing in all these countries? It's an amazing story, with plenty of drama and quite a few surprises. Britain has invaded nearly 90 per cent of the world's countries over the course of its history. Despite not having had nearly as long a history, the United States seems to have pushed the accelerator in the invasion category. This volume sets forth the amazing facts on American military involvement around the world. Decide for yourself the significance of Britain's special relationship with American military power.
