Show synopsis In this panoramic tour of America's military past, acclaimed artist Don Troiani once again turns his brush to the wars of the 18h and 19th centuries, focusing on the storied battles of those conflicts. From the French and Indian War through the Civil War, Troiani brings his flair for painstaking detail and high drama to such famous battle scenes as Bushy Run, Bunker Hill, Cowpens, Burnside's Bridge at Antietam, Little Round Top at Gettysburg, and Chickamauga. Narratives by leading military historians accompany the paintings and provide background stories that are as exciting as they are informative. For many of the pieces, Troiani has written insightful and often humorous commentary on the joys, surprises, and challenges of the creative process, offering a rare glimpse of the artist at work. Don Troiani's American Battles is his most unique work to date, a must-have for newcomers and old fans alike. Foreword by Peter Harrington. Lavishly illustrated with full-color artwork, some of which can only be found in private collections. Contributors include some of military history's biggest names, such as Stephen W. Sears, Robert K. Krick, and the late Brian Pohanka.
