Pocket/student size Chinese-Chinese military dictionary, no English, gives Chinese definitions, about 6-10 definitions per page. 2,361 terms in 25 categories including strategic, operational, tactical, army, navy, air force, missiles, units, training, tech, artillery, armor, engineer, etc. Civilian publisher, so not “authoritative” though many of the definitions check against other sources. This Shanghai based reference publishing house also publishes a Military volume Dacihai (大辞海 军事卷), which has gone through editorial review by all four general departments, the service headquarters and a dozen other military units, organizations, or academies/institutes. It is likely this expertise carries over in this abridged version made for quick reference use. Preface states it incorporates Chinese and foreign, modern and classical terms, but definitions do not explain whether definition is PLA’s or a specific foreign country’s definition.
