Grade 6-9-What might have been a useful reference tool succumbs to a jumbled, busy layout. The book opens with an excellent time line outlining 6000 years of conflict divided into 11 ages and periods. The alphabetical entries that follow are accurate, but often too brief to avoid gaps in the information presented. Topics of special interest are shaded in gray and included under their appropriate alphabetical section (for example, "Armor" is in the A's), but often come in the middle of other entries (e.g., "Armor" splits the article on the "Anglo-Afghan Wars" into two sections). In addition, these special topics are not always in strict alphabetical order. The entry on "Horse" appears between "Heavy Artillery" and "Helicopter." The colorful format incorporates three or four columns, margin sidebars, and two to six captioned photos, reproductions, and drawings per spread. The inside margins are very narrow, making the text difficult to read. Thumbnail biographies are provided in a four-page "Dictionary of Military Leaders." A poorly organized, poorly designed volume.
