Encyclopedia of Military Biography

by FanOfTimeLifeBooks on May 29, 2009

The Harper Encyclopedia of Military Biography is a useful reference tool profiling 3,000 great military leaders from ancient times to the present. The following information is provided for each biographical entry: dates of birth and death (if known), nationality, rank or title, principal wars, nickname (if applicable), overview of the subject's life, and an evaluation of the leader's abilities and achievements. For most entries there is a list of books one can read for more information about the leader. While I have not read this book cover-to-cover I have referred to it many times as I have taught my American history students the French and Indian War, the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, and the Civil War. If you are a student or teacher of military history then this book needs to be on your shelf. Highly recommended.
