Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Watsons, editors of U.S. Army and Navy dictionaries, here compile a listing of major U.S. Air Force (U.S.A.F.) terms (people, places, and equipment are not included) in use from 1947 to 1992. Chosen for their unique Air Force application, terms are alphabetically arranged. Each entry includes a definition and ends with a reference section listing several publications in which these terms may be found; see and see also references are liberally used to lead the reader to related items. A useful 14-page preface lists many Air Force acronyms. The U.S.A.F. uses more unique terms than any other branch of the service, and this hefty volume probably has defined most of them. The most heavily used references in this area seem to be Department of Defense Dictionary of Military Terms, Air Force Manual 11-1: Glossary of Standardized Terms ; and Woodford A. Heflin's U.S.A.F. Dictionary (1956. o.p.) . Although not nearly as comprehensive as Historical Dictionary of the U.S. Air Force ( LJ 4/1/92), this will be of value to people dealing with the Air Force or to libraries wishing to update Heflin.-- Richard Nowicki, Emerson Vocational H.S., Buffalo, N.Y.
Booknews
A dictionary for the serious researcher of the US Air Force. As an academic reference, it attempts to discuss the major Air Force terms currently in use, although the names of people, places, events, and equipment have been omitted here and are to be covered in a subsequent volume in this series. The scope of this dictionary is post-World War II, with an emphasis on the present. This is the fourth volume in the Garland Series on US Military Affairs; the first three deal with US Intelligence, the US Army, and the US Navy, respectively. Annotation c.
