by Lon P. Dawson with Floyd “Wes” Higgins and James Steinman

Culinary Campaign: A History of Military Cuisine with Stories, Songs, and Recipes

Culinary Campaign takes us back to the original thirteen colonies and the outbreak of the Revolutionary War. You’ll learn what the troops ate at Valley Forge as well as how to reproduce those meals yourself. Subsequent chapters focus on Northern and Southern provisions during the Civil War, how frontier soldiers foraged for food in the West, what troops ate at the front lines of WWI, how soldiers in Vietnam supplemented their rations packs, and even what soldiers of the future may survive on. All in all, it is a fascinating look at the role food has played in our country’s military campaigns. There are approximately 200 recipes with many stories, anecdotes, and songs to accompany them.
