About the Author:

Elizabeth-Anne Wheal and Stephen Pope were history scholars at Cambridge and Oxford respectively, and have compiled a number of major reference works including The Dictionary of the Second World War.

From Library Journal:

Pope and Wheal (The Dictionary of the Second World War, LJ 9/15/90) use facts, narrative, and analysis in over 1200 dictionary entries to cover all areas of World War I. The entries range in length from single-sentence definitions to several pages and present a comprehensive picture of the global aspect of the conflict. Their volume represents all nations. The entries are extensively cross referenced, moving the reader from a general entry, i.e., "trench warfare," to a more specific one, i.e., "breakthrough tactics," to a more specialized entry, i.e., "four-minute men." This cross referencing accounts for the big-picture view of this conflict. Cross references are noted in capital letters. All manner of weapons, tactics, and strategies are discussed here, as well as commanders from every level of organization. The chronology is useful for quick reference. Readers needing a more comprehensive work should turn to Randal Gray's two-volume Chronicle of the First World War (Facts on File, 1990, 1991). The current book is recommended for general and informed readers.
