Overview

The Green Berets, Seals, Delta Force — an inside glimpse of the equipment, weapons, and technology comprising the shadowy world of these elite warriors.

These amazing reference works achieve what other visual dictionaries simply aspire to. They remain the only full-color photographic lexicons available, because their Eyewitness blend of text and image is virtually inimitable. First depicting "whole" objects, the format then "explodes" them, detailing the tiniest features with labels and annotation that build into a 3,000-word specialized vocabulary on the subject.

Editorial Reviews

Washington Post
Valuable reference that doesn't overwhelm ... kids love to pore over such books.
New York Times
Eyewitness Visual Dictionaries make learning a lush, intriguing journey.
RQ
The Eyewitness Visual Dictionaries differ from the Eyewitness books in that the text is longer and the vocabulary more difficult.... The photographs are outstanding.... The brief text compresses many details into a few sentences. The vocabulary is scholarly... and charts combined with the text give a clear overview of the subject[s].
