This four volume set, solidly bound and clearly written, gives facts, figures, and history on 101 warships, fighter planes, tanks, and bombers. The arrangement is chronological (oldest to newest) and the format is uniform. The name of the model (for aircraft and tanks) or the specific names (for ships) is writ large across the top of the page. Beneath, a two-line bolded summary of the most salient facts about the career of each line or ship serves as an attention-grabbing lead-in. Fact boxes give specifications, including country of origin, description of type or class, engine and power specifics, weight/displacement, and range. The history of each is then outlined in several paragraphs of crisp prose. Each entry includes a photograph of the machine being considered (some color, many black-and-white) and, at the bottom of the page, a clear, full color drawing. An excellent browsing source, there is not really sufficient information on any given armament to provide report information. Still, there is definitely an audience for this type of presentation. A glossary of terms, list of applicable museums and societies, bibliography, and basic index complete each volume. Taken together or singly, these books supply a compelling look at the evolution of firepower which will certainly have appeal to warfare buffs from the upper elementary age on. Reviewer: Ann Welton
