This is probably the pre-eminent Arabic-English/English-Arabic Military Dictionary in the world. The terms are very well researched. Many dictionaries misuse military terms just in the source language, which means the translation will never be accurate. This dictionary uses terms which are standard or recognizable throughout the English-speaking military world, and standard Arabic terms that are at least understood in most or all of the widely varied Arabic dialects. It is much better - more accurate, better organized, more comprehensive - than just about any other Arabic dictionary for military purposes, including the Hans Wehr, Oxford, and the Mawrid. The dictionaries produced and issued by the US, Egyptian and Iraqi militaries are also inferior.

I got my copy in Cairo, at Madbuli Bookstore in Talat Harb Square for a better price. Otherwise, this is a good price, especially compared to US prices for most Arabic dictionaries.
As to the other (1-star) rating, that's what he gets for buying a dictionary when he wanted a tourist guidebook.
The only reason I hesitate to give the book five stars is that it doesn't address at all any regional considerations, which are as important as anything in Arabic translation.

I originally bought this book as I was learning arabic and working with several Arab military officers. One advantage is that this book appears to be based on the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) resources which means that the terms have been reviewed by several Arab-speaking nations.

The Arab military personnel, with whom I have shared this book, unanimously like it. As a result, they have requested several copies for their own use. (since the dictionary translates both ways)

The only limitation of the dictionary is that is is far from complete and lacks some of the more basic tactical terms.

4 stars because this is probably the best dictionary currently in print. Having said that... we need something more comprehensive, but this is ok for now. It uses standard terms in English, and in Arabic- but doesn't have enough of them. Dictionaries like this need to cite more slang, all soldiers use slang. The other reviewer cited Hans Wehr, Oxford, and al-Mawrid. Yo, these are general use dictionaries, not specific. The Royal Academy Spanish dictionary manages to include slang, and regional variations... and so should all dictionaries.

Good comphrehensive list of different terms. One thing it is lacking is short vowels, so it is NOT for beginners........but Intermediate to Advanced unless you are able to get correct pronounciations of the words.
