Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Examines the impact of war on young people throughout the world and at different times in history, beginning with the Thirty Years' War in the 1600s. Some 300 entries cover the activities of young people in most of the important wars, revolutions, and conflicts of the last 400 years, and especially those of the last century. Entries on such topics as food, disease, and education describe the daily life of young people in war-torn countries. Entries on individuals profile children who illustrate particular wartime activities or hardships, or who won fame as diarists, rescuers, spies, or resistance leaders. Other entries deal with adults and organizations that have worked to help children of war. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
