About the Author:

John Keegan is the Defence Correspondent for the Daily Telegraph and has published numerous books, including A History of Warfare (1994), Churchill's Generals (1991), and the Routledge Who Was Who in World War Two (1995)
Andrew Wheatcroft is a lecturer at Stirling University and has written extensively on military and historical topics. He is the author of War, Peace and Peoples; Nicholas II: a Photographic Biography and The Habsburg Empire.

Review:

"The entries and short and to-the-point, with a minimum of analysis and comments, and are excellent for looking up those elusive details without having to wade through lengthy biographies. A short glossary defines common military terms, and a map section situates the battles of the main conflicts described." -- Canadian Military History - Autumn 96
