Wars of the Americas is the most recent entry in the crowded field of chronologies. Seeking to fill a gap, Canadian writer-historian Marley has created a work that fleshes out a military chronology of the Americas. He warns at the outset, "inevitably, any attempt to compress 500 years of warfare into a single volume must entail certain compromises. Each of the events in the chronology that follows includes a paragraph or two of narrative explaining its historical significance. The last section, "Pax Americana (1898^-Present)", ends with such recent events as the occupation of the Japanese embassy in Lima by Tupac Amaru guerrillas and the retirement of Chile's General Augusto Pinochet in March 1998. The volume includes many illustrations from famous works of art or historical photographs-many from the author's own private collection-as well as line drawings of military maps.

For the seriously dedicated students of history----this is a very handy reference about often overlooked conflicts in American history. When you have a question about a particular battle fought, I found this book very helpful in explaining obscure facts of history. It lays the background of characters and incidents that are often passed over in many other written histories. The timeline is especially helpful in putting things into perspective----the author has also taken the time to compile a very detailed index which enables you to quickly reference the specific incident that you need to analyze. This encyclopedia definitely belongs in the personal library of researchers, writers, teachers and historians as the author has compiled the forgotten facts that help us understand the bigger picture of history.

A chronological breakdown of conflicts and events between nations through time. Would have liked to see references for each of the events listed, but there is an extensive bibliography which is provided to help meet this purpose.
