"This is a very easy-to-use and highly readable book. It could supplement history collections as well as strengthen the reference sections on the Victorian era and on the British Empire. It would be a good purchase for academic and large public library collections, satisfying both the informal researcher and the serious student."
-Patricia Hogan, Booklist, March 15, 2005
". . . is an excellent sourcebook for high school and college students. With over 350 entries, helpful maps, multiple cross-references and a solid, up to date bibliography, this encyclopedia could serve as a good starting point for any research project, particularly one examining British military history in the late Victorian era. . . . as a one volume text, it is an excellent work of reference."
