Editorial Reviews

?This is an ideal reference work, for it contains more than 10,000 entries arranged chronologically by year, month, and day. Each entry is a concise, factual description of an event together with relevant background information and identification of the locale and the major participants. As the author puts it, this is a chronology of conflict rather than of war.' His intent is that it should be used as a research tool.' Fortunately, it does contain a detailed index as well as a glossary of abbreviations.?-Infantry
