9780062700155: The Harper Encyclopedia of Military Biography

This tremendous work provides in-depth, accurate, and insightful profiles of approximately 3,000 of the world's greatest military leaders and thinkers, from Julius Caesar and before to Norman Schwartzkopf. Arranged alphabetically, the biographical entries range from 200 to 1,000 words, and each includes, first, a swift overview of the subject, his birth and death dates (if known), and the major wars, battles, or campaigns in which he participated. This is followed, in most entries, by a main narrative of his life, and evaluation of the subject's character, abilities, and contribution, and finally a brief bibliography of books about him.

From Library Journal:

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.
