Appeared in Library Journal on 1992-08:
This work incorporates profiles of aproximately 3000 of the world's principal military leaders from antiquity to the present. The entries, arranged alphabetically, include the subject's birth and death dates, the governments she or he served, and a list of the principal wars and battles in which she or he participated. Most references also include a narrative from 200-1000 words of the subject's life, a brief analysis of achievements and capacities; and a brief bibliography. While choices for both inclusion and omission may be challenged (why, for example, admit Shanks Evans to the collection and not Jubal Early?), the overall accuracy and perception of the biographical sketches earn this work a place in all collections on military history.-- D.E. Showalter, U.S. Air Force Acad., Colorado Springs
