Storming the City

U.S. Military Performance in Urban Warfare from World War II to Vietnam

2015 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, War & Military (Adult Nonfiction)

Storming the City explores urban warfare by analyzing the performance of the US Army and US Marine Corps in urban combat in four major urban battles of the mid-twentieth century (Aachen 1944, Manila 1945, Seoul 1950, and Hue 1968). Alec Wahlman assesses each battle using a similar framework of capability categories, and separate chapters address urban warfare in American military thought.
