Overview

This reference guide is the only study available that concentrates on the most important military trends in the Third World since 1945. Designed for students and history buffs, this short reference is handy for beginning research on different countries and regions and for examining the most significant military events for the United States and the world over the last 50 years. Figures and tables provide up-to-date data in succinct form, and the factual information in this guide has been collected from many sources which are not always easily accessible. An appendix points to key events, and a short bibliography notes significant government documents, reference materials, and interesting and useful books on the subject.
