Overview

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

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Tucker (history, Virginia Military Inst.; Encyclopedia of the Vietnam War) is more than qualified to oversee the monumental task of compiling and editing a work such as this. A handsome, three-volume set, it contains more than 1200 alphabetical entries, which span from "Andersonville" to "Yorktown," range in length from less than a page for individual events and biographies to multiple pages for major wars and equipment, and conclude with a brief list of books for further study. Although using hundreds of photos, illustrations, and maps, this excellent work still makes a few omissions in terms of subject (no individual entries for Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush), illustrations (particularly of military ranks and awards that patrons will be looking up), and photographs (why picture a World War I French tank and not a more modern M1 or a historically significant Sherman?). Yet all entries are accessibly written and reflect the knowledge and clear writing style of the author. Highly recommended for larger high school and public libraries.-Lt. Col. (ret.) Charles M. Minyard, U.S. Army, Blountstown, FL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-With more than 1200 alphabetical entries, this encyclopedia provides a comprehensive and informative overview of the subject, from the Colonial wars through the events of September 11, 2001. Entries include individuals; overviews of the causes, courses, and effects of American wars; and key technological inventions and weapons systems. Women and minorities are well represented. Each concisely written entry is preceded by a brief synopsis or definition, and all retain the focus on the military. For example, presidential biographies stress the military aspects of the administrations. Maps, illustrations, and black-and-white photographs complement the text. Each entry is followed by a short list of suggested readings. A glossary of military terms and a selective bibliography appear in volume three. Careful readers will realize that William Tecumseh Sherman's financial career took a setback in 1857, not 1957. A comprehensive, user-friendly resource.-Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt. Carmel, IL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
