Creating a Master Makefile for use with nmake

Can someone please tell me how to create a Makefile to be used with Visual C++ nmake utility that includes a list of Makefiles?  In other words, how to create a parent Makefile.

Just call NMAKE from your master makefile to the others...

Another way is just to make a BAT file that calls nmake for all makefiles !?!

My question is what are the rules that you would include in the parent Makefile?
You will just have to call NMAKE (perhaps @NMAKE) from within your makefile.. There is no makefile<->makefile releationship stuff here... Remember makefile where born on Unix where there is a lot of scripting so a big project was offen scripted around a series of makefiles
