These sub-lists are intended to steer readers to topics in which they are most interested.

  "Demystifying the American Military eases the reader into military world with early 'basic training' chapters on U.S. military organizations and the individuals that serve in them, then deftly explores how the military evolved into the vast, vital American institution of the 21st century.
