Summary
  • The Biographical Dictionary of World War II is a monumental, single-volume reference that contains authoritative accounts of more than 1,000 key personalities from the war years. Selected from the vast stage of World War II are concise, fact-filled biographical sketches of the personages who shaped and directed the events of this titanic conflict. Arranged alphabetically from Abdul Illah ibn Ali, the regent of Iraq who was executed by his own people following the war, to
  • Solly Zuckerman, the British scientist and adviser on strategic bombing decisions, the more than 1,000 entries form a comprehensive and invaluable reference to World War II. A major feature increasing the dictionary's usefulness is a wealth of comprehensive cross references used to link the entries of individuals referred to elsewhere in the book. Pertinent bibliographical information accompanies entries, and at the end of the book is a complete bibliography of works and sources used, as well as an extensive glossary
