?This dictionary is a model of its genre in both form and content and will likely become for all large libraries the standard source on the subject in any language for decades to come. The authors, both American professors of European history, bring to their task specializations in German and Russian history that lend balance to the 324 biographies of political and military figures who dominated the conflict. Sketches are well cross-referenced and include lists of works consulted; a master bibliography toward the end of the book cites the literature in six languages written through the 1970s and is followed by an exhaustive index. An excellent fifty-page introduction preceding the body of the text traces the war from its origins to the peace settlement and is documented with footnotes and eight maps. Two appendixes contain a useful monthly chronology of events and a ... list of chief occupations of biographees by country before, during, and after the war. The publisher is to be congratulated for the volume's handsome format and printing art too often absent in similar dictionaries.?-Reference Quarterly
