This broad-based overview begins with the U.S. Army’s purpose and culture, and then covers training, jobs, gear, weapons, and special operations. The dynamic layout includes captioned photos, sidebars, and fact boxes that feature topics such as “Women in the Army.” Students will gain insight into the daily lives of soldiers—from basic training up to the high-risk missions of the Special Forces.
