David F. Marley has taken on a herculean task in this handsome two-volume set from ABC-Clio. First, a note on the publishers: They are engaged in a long-term project attempting to catalogue through volumes such as these a comprehensive military history of events since the dawn of time. Marley's work is another in their series of both anthologies and single-author works that serve primarily as reference volumes for the novice as well as the professional military historian.
