Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This volume in the excellent "Witness to History" series gives a concise but balanced account of the events leading up to June 6, 1944, when Allied Forces landed on the beaches of Normandy to push the Germans back to Berlin. The complex issues that led to the Second World War are illuminated through the use of historical data, maps, actual photos and first-hand accounts of participants, whether active solders or civilians who helped on the many home fronts. Written for the older elementary or middle school student, its social/historical approach allows the reader to learn about multiple facets of an event involving many nations of the world. A timeline, glossary and resources for further study are included. 2003, Heinemann Library, Ages 9 to 12.
