Gr 10 Up-From Afghans to Zulus, and from the Spartans and Knights Templar to the Green Berets and the Flying Circus, this volume covers all of the basics on most of the fearsome fighting groups throughout history. They are listed alphabetically by their official name, but if readers don't know that Napoleon's army was called the Grande Arm e, they can find a reference to it under Napoleon in the index. The articles are short (usually one to two pages), and many include a black-and-white reproduction, photo, or map. Some of the pictures are a bit hazy. Each article ends with a brief selection of references. The index includes particular battles as well as individual leaders. The absence of the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot seems a bit striking, but otherwise, this is a good reference book that will also be popular with browsers.-Herman Sutter, Saint Pius X High School, Houston, TX
