Death at Kent State: How a Photograph Brought the Vietnam War Home to America

It didn’t seem possible. Four college students shot dead May 4, 1970, by Ohio National Guardsmen during a protest against the Vietnam War. The shootings at Kent State University would shock the nation and spark a mass student strike across the country, the only one in U.S. history. A photojournalism student’s photograph of a teen girl crying in anguish over a victim’s dead body would win the Pulitzer Prize and become a symbol of the antiwar movement.

School Library Journal, "25 Titles and Resources To Explore the Vietnam War" - Maggie Knapp

"Beginning on the day John Filo’s iconic Kent State photograph was taken, the narrative quickly circles back to provide background on how the United States became involved in Vietnam and why the U.S. presence was controversial. It includes details of the shooting of the four students killed and the resulting investigation and follows up on the memorials at the school." - School Library Journal, "25 Titles and Resources To Explore the Vietnam War"

Booklist - Sarah Hunter

"Iconic photographs capturing key historical moments litter textbooks, but sometimes the historical circumstances surrounding those photos get lost in the shuffle. Titles in the Captured History series aim to clarify that context by zeroing in on recognizable photos and outlining some of the events leading up to the moment as well as analyzing the photograph and its ultimate impact. . . .The approachable text, appealing layout, and fascinating lens through which to explore history are all bolstered by extensive source notes and additional resources." - Booklist

VOYA - Jim Nicosia

"STARRED REVIEW! Capstone’s Captured History series of middle-grade picture books proceeds from the belief that a photograph can change the world. To that end, it has inaugurated its series with exquisite and insightful texts focused on the most iconic photographs in history. . . .each book succinctly takes a measured approach to understanding the visual imagery, historical context, and complex sociopolitical climate within which a photograph thrives. Even adults long-since familiar with the images will find much to learn and appreciate in this impressive collection. . . .these brief texts will ignite interest and perhaps prompt more research. As such, these books should be in every progressive middle school in the nation." - VOYA

"Top 10 Continuing Series! The stunning books in this series view history through the lens of groundbreaking photographs, zooming in on iconic moments and then placing them in greater historical context. Look for series subsets in world history and sports, too." - Booklist
