This paper is a review of the 1984 revised edition of Military Heritage of America by Ernest and Trevor Dupuy, first published in 1956. The reviewer finds that the revision has many of the strengths of the original edition, but fails to provide the new material needed to make it the comprehensive, up-to-date work that it was in the 1950s. He cites three weaknesses in particular: its failure to mention the recently recognized importance of signal intelligence in World War II, its uneven treatment of the Vietnam War, and, finally, the fact that its bibliography has not been updated.
