Military drones have been part of wars for more than 100 years. Today’s military unmanned aerial vehicles are packed with sensors, high-quality cameras, and even weapons. With each UAV flight, military members are kept safe away from war zones. Young readers will learn how both aerial and underwater military drones operate and get inside details about some of the missions they’ve completed.

School Library Journal - Audrey Sumser, Kent State University at Tuscarawas, New Philadelphia, OH

"With consumer and commercial drone use on the rise, this timely set explores the current uses of this technology and postulates on its myriad possibilities in the future. Kids will be fascinated by the numerous ways individuals are using drones, be it to scan for weeds amid acres of farmland or to deliver humanitarian assistance, and the accompanying photographs and artistic renderings provide readers with a birds-eye view of the high-tech flying machines. . . .A solid choice that will satisfy readers’ thirst for knowledge of this popular technology." - School Library Journal
