I get trying to simplify the text, but geez, this book is trash.
There are a lot of gruesome descriptions in this book about the conditions our military faced while fighting, including how POWs were treated and mis-treated, but I believe that is a necessary and important part of the stories. Kids today playing video games have a lot of fun shooting up the enemy. This book teaches them that war is in no way fun.
Now I'm looking forward to reading Great Battles for Boys: WW2 in Europe by the same author, which I ordered both in book format as well as the Kindle format. The author lists websites and YouTube sites at the ends of many of the stories. With this book in Kindle format you can just click on the web sites or You-Tube sites listed and you are taken directly to them. He also lists movies that have been made of some of the battles. I bought the books in paperback so that I can pass them on to my grandsons AFTER I read them.
Please give these books a read, no matter what age you are. The author of these books does an amazing job of telling the stories of war.
Did you know that most of the American POWs in the Bataan Death March were from New Mexico? And Ernie Pyle, famous reporter, was from here, too. And where do you think the Navajo Code Talkers grew up. This just happens to be a great book for New Mexico kids, as well as any other kids.
Biographical information follows every battle. Truly excellent work - gets kids excited to keep reading!
