Abstract:

"This book provides concise definitions of some 2,500 terms related both to modern military affairs and to military history, from ancient times to the present. It covers all aspects of military and naval affairs, including strategy, tactics, weapons, fortifications, organizations, ranks, and administration. This is not a work of lexicography on historical principles; it is not, strictly speaking, an etymological dictionary. This Dictionary of Military Terms strictly emphasizes the military meanings and derivations of words and phrases, including those that enjoy popular usage. Thus, the military sense of both widely used and highly technical terms is accurately conveyed."--Introduction, page vi.
