The Harper Encyclopedia of Military Biography
by Trevor N. Dupuy, Curt Johnson and David L. Bongard

This tremendous work provides in-depth, accurate, and insightful profiles of approximately 3,000 of the world's greatest military leaders and thinkers, from Julius Caesar and before to Norman Schwartzkopf. Arranged alphabetically, the biographical entries range from 200 to 1,000 words, and each includes, first, a swift overview of the subject, his birth and death dates (if known), and the major wars, battles, or campaigns in which he participated. This is followed, in most entries, by a main narrative of his life, and evaluation of the subject's character, abilities, and contribution, and finally a brief bibliography of books about him.
