Secretaries of War and Secretaries of the Army, 1775-2005, first published in 1981 by William Gardner Bell and periodically updated while preserving its original purpose and scope, continues the institutional history of the Secretariat followed by side-by-side presentations of the biography and official portrait of each secretary in the line of succession. Interesting, informative, and inspiring, Secretaries of War and Secretaries of the Army honors these officials for their contributions as eminent leaders in the history of the Army and in the history of the nation. It is a valuable reference source, especially for libraries, for congressional armed services committees, and for students and scholars in such diverse fields as military history, political science, American studies, and art and portraiture.
