Encyclopedia of American Military History

by Spencer Tucker (Editor)


Tucker (political science, Virginia Military Institute) edited the entries of this three-volume encyclopedia, which includes a glossary of terms and acronyms, and a lengthy bibliography. Each entry is signed by its author, is cross- referenced, and includes a list of titles for further reading. Many of the entries contain photos or drawings and maps of battles, when appropriate. The encyclopedia will be a useful tool for high school and undergraduate students. Of the c.200 contributors, many teach in the US, (one is in Germany), including several at the Virginia Military Institute; many are in the armed forces, and several are listed without an affiliation. The 2003 conflict in Iraq is not included. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
