This is the comprehensive dictionary of military terminology, acronyms and abbreviations. It is your "secret decoder ring" for Pentagonese, Defensespeak, and military jargon. Every term from "abort" to "ZULU time," and every acronym from "A" to "ZULU." At 579 pages it includes every commonly used military term. All terms and definitions are directly from the DOD dictionary (updated May 2011) and are the official US DOD or NATO definition. 

From DOD: This publication supplements standard English-language dictionaries and standardizes military and associated terminology to improve communication and mutual understanding within DOD, with other federal agencies, and among the United States and its allies.
