This new bibliography gives the reader much more than just a list of all the major official histories from around the world. Divided into two sections, the first section gives a bibliography of the primary official histories that cover the military, naval and aviation histories. The second section gives a chronology of events cross-referenced to the primary official histories. Finally within the appendices, the secondary official histories and diplomatic official histories are listed. In the first bibliographical section, each individual book title is given a block of information and in some cases detailed notes have been added giving background information. This data is principally for dealers and collectors, giving an idea of the structure of the volume ranging from the size and binding through to the number of pages and illustrations. The second cross referencing section is aimed at the researcher drawing together the events with the histories. This Bibliography is a must for any serious academic, collector or book dealer.
