The author has added many things to what appeared in previous editions, some from his experience in the tropics while serving with the Eighth Army Corps and at general headquarters in the Philippines. In this respect it has an advantage over some other works that have recently appeared. A number of articles in the work have been rewritten and others expanded by incorporation of new items. The work, as a whole, has been, as the author says, critically revised.
