Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[T]his extensive examination of the war fulfills the aim of being a 'definitive' set. . . . The entries, overall, are succinct and well written. . . . This exhaustive encyclopedia is highly recommended for public and academic libraries where budget allows—particularly those without Tucker's earlier incarnation of this set, The Encyclopedia of World War I: A Political, Social, and Military History (2006)." - Booklist
