Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello!
I am looking for a good handbook in the acoustics field. I read that handbook of acoustics by Malcolm J. Crocker is one of the best, second one that came up in my research is master handbook of acoustics by Everest & Pohlmann. Can anyone recommend one over the other, or maybe knows something better than either of those two?

Principles of Underwater Sound by Urick is considered a bible by sonar folks.

Also Computational Ocean Acoustics by Jensen etal... is pretty good too.

However, I imagine you're looking more for air acoustics.

One last interesting tidbit, is that there's a contention that some battles have been lost due to unusual acoustical environments. Here's one writeup on it:
