In Syracuse, New Yorks Pulaski Park, a bronze WWI soldier stands on a rock with his bayonet pointed out in front, ready to attack German forces. This is just one example of the works of art or other kinds of memorials to conflicts in which tens of thousands of people fought or suffered. This directory identifies such sites and makes them accessible to the traveler or researcher.

This unique state-by-state reference covers monuments, memorials, museums, markers, statues and library collections that relate to the veterans, weapons, vehicles, airplanes, victims or any other aspect of war in which the United States participated. While a site may have been created before 1900 (such as a fort), there must be some operational or historical tie to a twentieth century conflict to be included here. General collections, such as a museum of aviation, will be included if there is information related to a twentieth century conflict. The coverage is so thorough that statues honoring veterans of the Civil War featuring added veterans of later wars on their rosters of honorees will appear along with veterans' memorials covering all wars. Another example of the comprehensiveness of this compilation is in the inclusion of memorials to victims of war such as the Holocaust Museum in Houston, Texas.

For each site, the following information is given: street address, phone number, Internet site and email address (if applicable), days and hours of operation, admission fees, other necessary information, and a brief description of the site.
