Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This might well have been entitled Atlas of American Military History , since military matters predominate. The whole of American history is lucidly condensed into a mere 35 pages of narrative text, which is expanded by map and picture captions. This conciseness will force users to seek elaboration of events in other works. Some of the maps have been used previously, as in Natkiel's Atlas of Maritime History . While the maps themselves are crisply drawn, the multicolor format has not photocopied well, and the arbitrary shading for land or water is confusing. The three-page index is inadequate. The primary use of this volume will be to udate aging historical atlas collections. James Moffet, Baldwin P.L., Birmingham, Mich.

Focuses almost exclusively on warfare, both domestic and foreign, with some information on colonization and expansion. The 200 maps, most in color, are accompanied by drawings and photographs. Sections such as Founding a Nation, Imperial Democracy, and The Two World Wars, are introduced by essays. First published in 1993 by Brompton Books in Greenwich, CT, and here updated to include the invasion of Panama, Desert Storm, and the 1992 presidential election. No bibliography. Annotation c.
