Library Media Connection - Janet Luch, Educational Reviewer & Adjunct Instructor SUNY New Paltz, Touro Coll

"Each of these descriptive and exciting guides to ancient warriors tells the way that they fought, the weapons they used, and how we think of them today. Unfamiliar words are bolded within the text with the meaning given in context. In addition, there are many labeled diagrams to help the reader visualize descriptions. The books describe the beginnings of the warrior class discussed, changes over time, and interesting information about their lives. Key figures and battles are discussed, along with stories surrounding them and why they were important. The last chapter looks at how the warriors are represented today in movies, books, and other popular culture. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
