The United States has to be prepared for conflict of every kind - from full-scale international war to combating an insidious terrorist enemy on a global front - wherever the nation's interests lie. U.S. military power is the mightiest in the world, in terms of numbers of weapons, potential destructive power, and variety. This fact-packed directory describes and illustrates hundreds of individual weapons, ranging from small arms to battle tanks and artillery pieces, fighters and bombers, aircraft carriers, cruisers and destroyers, submarines, and strategic missiles. No other single volume matches its coverage of the "arsenal of democracy" which will remain at the forefront of public awareness for years to come.
