Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
This comprehensive, historical series on America's role in World War II is organized and written in a compelling "You Were There" style. Each volume covers one year of the war. Entries are arranged in chronological order, although some dates are omitted, while a few have more than one entry. In this way the reader gets caught up in what is happening all over the world, including on the homefront. Shameful events such as the internment of Japanese American citizens as well as clearly heroic deeds are included. The vivid, newspaper-like style is further enlivened by many direct quotes from primary sources. While the volumes are fascinating and exciting, the horror of war is often brought shockingly to the reader's attention. A prologue giving background information on the previous year, black and white photographs, maps, an index, bibliography, list of important dates and several brief biographies of leaders of the time, add to the book's educational value.
School Library Journal
Gr 7 UpA vivid picture of the final year of the war. As in his earlier books, Devaney has put to use his impressive skill at synthesizing outstanding research and constructing a clear, readable narrative. After a short prologue that sets the scene, he succinctly covers the U.S. and her allies' actions and reactions during their conduct of political and martial strategies and tactics throughout 1945. The contemporary relevance of those not-so-distant events is made clear by the author, for it was the Allied victory that brought about ``the growing distrust between communist Soviet Russia and the Western democracies'' that ushered in the nuclear age and the cold war. The presentation is enhanced by the use of primary-source material taken from newspapers, magazines, advertisements, anecdotes, reminiscences, etc.; the day-by-day journal-like entries; and the addenda of short biographical sketches of leaders, a chronology, and maps. It greatly complements the previous titles in the series as well as the Hooblers' An Album of World War II Watts, 1977; o.p. and Edward Dolan's Victory in Europe Watts, 1988; o.p..David A.
