Library Media Connection - Lois McNicol

"These slim volumes with low-level vocabulary personalize war. They present many aspects of the conflicts, including the emotions involved, the harsh conditions under which the military fought, and the fierce determination to support a cause. Each book starts with a chapter explaining the origin of the conflict and ends with a chapter that explains the resolution of the war. Chapters highlighting individuals who were involved are written in a style that gives immediacy to historic events. Some chapters contain primary quotations, but most chapters are in narrative format. People on both sides of the conflict are represented, as are minorities. The books are attractive and eye-catching with colorful drawings and b&w photographs. Suitable for hi/lo reading at the high school level, this series is primarily geared toward upper elementary and middle school students. Glossary. Index. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
