Instances of Use of United States Armed Forces Abroad, 1798-2008
Richard F. Grimmett (au)
Lists hundreds of instances in which the U.S. has used its armed forces abroad in situations of military conflict or potential conflict or for other than normal peacetime purposes. Provides a survey of past U.S. military ventures abroad, without reference to the magnitude of the given instance noted. The instances differ in number of forces, purpose, extent of hostilities, and legal authorization. Eleven times in its history the U.S. has formally declared war against foreign nations. More recent instances often involve deployment of U.S. military forces as part of a multinational operation assoc. with NATO or the U.N. The majority of the instances listed prior to WW2 were brief Marine or Navy actions to protect U.S. citizens or promote U.S. interests.
