About the Author:

Spencer C. Tucker is the author or editor of fifteen books on military and naval history. He is professor and holder of the John Biggs Chair in Military History at the Virginia Military Institute.

From Booklist:

Tucker is the John Biggs Chair of Military History at the Virginia Military Institute. He has authored or edited nine books, including The Encyclopedia of the Korean War (ABC-CLIO, 2000) and The Encyclopedia of the Vietnam War (ABC-CLIO, 1998).

As the title suggests, this is a who's who type of biographical reference. It is worldwide in scope. Coverage includes army, navy, and air force personnel who served during the twentieth century. Most are high-ranking military leaders, but a few are individuals better known for their heroism, such as Alvin C. York. Also included are politicians (Roosevelt, Franklin Delano), explorers (Byrd, Richard E.), physicians (McIndoe, Archibald), writers (Remarque, Erich Maria), and others who played an important role in military history.

Most of the approximately 1,000 entries are 250 words in length or less. Information covered includes birth and death years, schooling, commands, battles, and promotions. Assisting users are a short preface and a list of abbreviations and terminology, the latter especially helpful as the author has used many abbreviations to save space and allow for more entries.

There are numerous biographical references of military people. Most of these are specialized according to time period, nationality, or service. Despite some overlapping coverage, Who's Who in Twentieth-Century Warfare is itself unique because of its worldwide scope. This would be an appropriate reference for military enthusiasts in academic and public libraries. RBB
