The Penguin Encyclopedia of Modern Warfare: From the Crimean War to the Present Day

by Kenneth Macksey, William J. Woodhouse
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
British military specialists Macksey and Woodhouse have produced a handy compendium of warfare over the past 150 years. The work's focus is on campaigns and battles from the Crimean War to the U.S. invasion of Grenada. It also includes comprehensive entries on specialized areas such as technology, low-intensity conflict, and the laws of war. Extensive and intelligent cross-referencing enhances the value of a well-written text complemented by over 80 maps and a useful chronology. Specialists will find nothing new in these pages. The clarity and accessibility of familiar material nevertheless makes this a useful desk reference compared to the latest edition of R. Ernest and Trevor N. Dupuy's formidable The Encyclopedia of Military History (HarperCollins, 1986. 2d ed.).-- D.E. Showalter, U.S. Air Force Acad., Colorado Springs
