MEDIA REVIEWS
"A methodical text applicable to advanced studies of comparative history, Tucker's reference work belongs in large public, high school, and college libraries that serves teachers, homeschoolers, historians, and researchers." - Booklist
"Each conflict is divided into: the causes, the course, and the consequences. Sections also include a timeline, further readings, occasional maps or illustrations, and tables denoting battles and various information. All of these parts, taken as a whole, provide both the novice and the expert a wonderful resource." - ARBA
"Conflicts such as these are far too often overlooked or lumped into specific wars, and rarely get attention in such stand-alone fashion. . . . Summing Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries." - Choice
Recommended for Community College, 2018 - Choice
