      • Trevor N. Dupuy

        Trevor Dupuy attended West Point, graduating in the class of 1938 During World War II he commanded a U.S Army artillery battalion, a Chinese artillery group, and an artillery detachment from the British 36th Infantry Division He was always proud of the fact that he had combat time in Burma than any other American, and received decorations for service or valour from the U.S British, and Chinese governments After the war Dupuy served in the United States Department of Defense Operations Division 1 from 1945 to 1947, and as military assistant to the Under Secretary of the Army from 1947 to 1948 He was a member of the original Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe SHAPE staff in Paris under Generals Dwight D Eisenhower and Matthew Ridgway from 1950 to 1952.It is as a military historian and a theorist that Trevor Dupuy would make a lasting mark on the world He is perhaps best known for his massive book The Encyclopedia Of Military History co written, like many of his books, with his father R Ernest Dupuy Starting from the beginning of history and going up the present day the book tries to cover all the major and minor military conflicts in world history Usually each entry arranged chronologically and by region gives little than the names of the commanders and often very rough estimates for the size of the forces involved in the campaigns Dupuy was not afraid of expressing an opinion and he classified some of his subjects as Great Captains such as Alexander the Great, Hannibal, Julius Caesar, Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden, Frederick II of Prussia and Napoleon Like most Western reference works it spends far time dealing with wars in Europe and the United States than the rest of the world, but it does at least try to cover the entire world The Encyclopedia Of Military History has been revised and updated several times, most recently in 1993 It can be found in the reference section of most American libraries.
