"A thoroughly detailed look at the sweep of American military history..., with an all-star cast of thousands, including contributors Stephen Ambrose, John Keegan, Volker Berghan, James McPherson, and many others.... Seems to cover every major (and minor) military action in US history.... A must-have for any military historian or history buff."--Kirkus Reviews"Using everything from brief entries to extensive essays, this one-volume treasure does much more than list battles and generals; it 'explores the changing nature of war and the military'.... Comprehensive and lively. Highly recommended for all public libraries."--Library Journal"Belongs on the bookshelf of all serious military historians. Thorough, fair, and readable, it is a treasure house of information [that] can also be read for entertainment."--John S. D. Eisenhower"To recruit 500 of the top military historians and experts across the full breadth of American military history to write with exacting standards of brevity and readability is a monumental accomplishment. Brilliantly planned and executed, The Oxford Companion to American Military History will be required for every military library, public and personal."--John F. Lehman"A careful and comprehensive collection of scholarship"--Washington Post Book World
