Library Media Connection - David Lininger, MS/HS Librarian, Hickory County R-1 Schools, Urbana, Missouri

"For some reason books about soldiers and their equipment tend to appeal more to boys than girls, particularly at the middle school level, and this series is no exception. Since these are short books they are not very detailed, but they are not lacking in information. Each title focuses on a different aspect of the military, and attempts to show as much as possible about that aspect. I’m looking forward to placing these books in my library and watching them circulate, I think my male students will enjoy them. Recommended." - Library Media Connection

Pete Delmar

Pete Delmar has many years' experience writing both educational and entertainment content for young people. Before turning to this field, he worked as an advertising copywriter, a technical writer, and an entertainment journalist writing about movies, music, TV, and various celebrities. Pete's first publishing experience occurred in fifth grade, when he and a friend created their own magazine and sold several issues to their classmates. Then summer came and they forgot all about the whole thing. That was Pete's first experience in writing for kids and since then it's become his favorite type of work. Pete lives on the fringes of a large Midwestern city with a yowling monster, otherwise known as a tortoiseshell feline named Punky Badcat.
