Editorial Reviews

"A well-constructed scholarly publication that will also appeal to the casual reader of American military history. Spiller and his associates ... have assembled 400 biographical essays, usually three to five pages long, of pertinent individuals from the French and Indian War through the Vietnam War. Native Americans are included. All branches of the military are represented.... The essays, written by an impressive list of scholars, are substantive and combine a factual and analytical approach to biography. Cross-references link the subjects to others prominent in the same period or conflict. A brief bibliography concludes each essay.... [This work] offers a well-integrated building block' approach to American military history, thus providing more than just a collection of biographical sketches. The set is well indexed and includes several useful appendixes. Suitable for academic libraries at all levels and for general readers as well."-Choice
