"This set summarizes events in major conflicts using brief first-person accounts, sidebars, short biographies, color and archival photos, maps, and other graphics. While most of these wars are independent of one another, some do cover overlapping time periods and therefore these titles do duplicate information. The authors’ presentations of these conflicts are balanced, with views from multiple perspectives. They don’t shy away from the more gruesome and shameful events, such as the Holocaust, the My Lai massacre, and Abu Ghraib. There is also some coverage of antiwar movements and the lives of noncombatants. It is refreshing to find some wars that traditionally receive less coverage included in this series. These volumes should be useful for report writers and satisfying to curious readers. - Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids, WI School Library Journal April 2012 Issue" - School Library Journal
"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. Glossary. Timeline. Index. –Tena Natale Litherland, Central Library Director, Webb School of Knoxville (Tennessee), and Adjunct Lecturer, University of Tennessee [Editor’s Note: Also available in paperback.] Library Media Connection Nov/Dec 2012 Starred Review" - Library Media Connection
