School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up-This companion to Walter Boyne's Air Warfare (ABC-CLIO, 2002) covers specific wars, battles, concepts, and some well-known individuals from the Battle of Kadesh (1274 B.C.E.) to mention of September 11, 2001, in the article on "Terrorism." The more than 1200 signed, well-written entries provide insight into the nature of war and synopses of events and lives and their significance. However, comprehension will be determined by readers' background knowledge of the almost 3300 years covered in the text. Each entry concludes with see-also notations and titles for further reading. The two-column format incorporates black-and-white reproductions, photos, and maps sparingly. Each volume begins with the same table of contents; lists of entries, maps, acronyms; and two-page glossary. Volume three contains a selected bibliography and an extensive index. While much of the information in this set can be found elsewhere, these volumes will be solid updates to most history collections.-Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
