This is the most comprehensive bibliography to date of works by and about General Matthew B. Ridgway, one of America's greatest military leaders.

This study offers a short biographical sketch, identifies important archival sources, and provides annotations with the 367 citations to books, documents, journal articles, and other materials. The bibliography is organized into chapters dealing with various genres of material, periods, and topics and then arranged alphabetically by author.
