About the Author:

McGraw-Hill authors represent the leading experts in their fields and are dedicated to improving the lives, careers, and interests of readers worldwide

From Library Journal:

This dictionary, part of a growing body of reference works on World War II, includes over 1600 alphabetically-listed entries focusing on weapons, operations, and personalities. On the whole the entries are accurate and informative despite their relative brevity; each of the major war theaters has a longer descriptive essay. Comprehensive cross-referencing enhances the dictionary's value to anyone seeking to check specific points quickly. Seven detailed chronologies based on the principal campaigns and 37 well-executed maps complete a work whose high quality merits a place in private collections as well as reference libraries.
