Library Media Connection - Tena Natale Litherland

"STAR REVIEW! With a sharp focus on issues and historical context, this series serves both student researchers and general readers alike. Remarkable for their clarity of framing complex issues and historical events, titles are complimented by strong layouts and eye-catching graphics. Archival photos, maps, sidebars, brief first person accounts, biographical sketches, and charts are skillfully arranged to enhance the text. These slender volumes are unusual for presenting multiple perspectives on key concepts and explaining the effect of war on civilians. Of particular note is “What Have We Learned?” which helps students see historical implications. Teachers and librarians will find the bibliography of books, documentaries, websites, and list of related topics useful for further research, teaching ideas, and collection development. Highly Recommended." - Library Media Connection

Omaha Public Schools - Kathleen Crawford-Rose

"This brief summary of the two Iraq Wars covers the historical, political and cultural/religious causes and effects of these two very different conflicts. This first Gulf War was primarily fought to restore the freedom of the small kingdom of Kuwait, which had been overrun by Saddam Hussein primarily so he could have access to their oil and shipping resources. After more than a year of UN sanctions and other failures, a coalition of countries bombed the Iraqi troops for two weeks and then ran them out of Kuwait.The second Iraq War was a much different affair. Some of President Bush’s advisors, primarily Dick Cheney, convinced him that Iraq had stores of Weapons of Mass Destruction that he planned to use. They also claimed that Saddam had strong links to La Qaida, the terrorist organization responsible for bombing the World Trade Center. Both of these claims were later shown to be false. Bush convinced the British Prime Minster, Tony Blair, to join him and they invaded Iraq. Although they quickly overran the country and eventually captured Saddam, they had no long range plan to stabilize the country and the war stretched on until 2011 when the majority of the US troops left. Iraq still does not have a stable government. –Kathleen Crawford-Rose, North High Omaha Public Schools 1/7/2013" - Omaha Public Schools
