July 4th 1776 started the ball rolling. Declaration of Independence layed the ground work of America's frame of mind which in turn led to its war machine.

For anyone who is not American (including me) post memorable military dates for your country and get them in a poll to!

The Civil War with its radical changes in government of the US and the expansion of industrialisation is for me the starting block of the US becoming a World Player 50 years later and subsequently the superpower of today.
Prior to the Civil War the US was a loose confederation of individual states lead by a conservative minded government, apeing to some extent the Georgian England that it had so recently divorced itself, dominated largely by the agricultural minded Southern gentry.
Afterwards it had a strong central government and was firmly commited to industrial expansion and forward thinking.
So maybe Americas most costly war in human lives had a point after all?

Trick question. The U.S. Civil War did have significant impact in overall military history as it would eventually cause tactics to change. Towards the end trench warfare began and primitive battleships fought it out. Most people don't realize the Civil War was extremely bloody with nearly 1 million KIA / wounded. Many of the wounded would not survive. Casualty rate was 25% average on both sides among troops that served. This was about as many American casualties during WW II but that only had 6% casualty rate. 2001 is too early to tell but 9/11 did cause U.S. military expenditures to nearly double to rates that now exceed spending during the peak of the Cold War. Plus the Iraq and Afganistan wars were unfunded and America is paying a fortune on the interest alone for the debt it contributed to. To spend 2x the resources against a group of maybe 1000 civilians that hide in caves or mud huts is a phyrric victory at best. Plus this unconventional war is not likely to ever end.

In August of 2004, Zappi, Homba, Bambam887, RedScorpion and MOOXE all pitched
in to create this Close Combat site. I would to thank all the people who have visited and
found this site to thier liking. I hope you had time to check out some of the great Close Combat
mods and our forums. I'd also like to thank all the members of our volunteer staff that have
helped over the years, and all our users that contributed to this site!
