School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 4-8-The pages of these books have the look of a computer screen, with icons running along the top and scroll arrows along the side. Each title has a four-page listing of Web links. To access the site, students must use a password, which is given on the first page of links. Following this webliography, each book gives a brief introduction to the featured military figures. Succeeding chapters focus on the perspective of each side, explaining the reasons for entering into the war and the political leaders, and the final chapter introduces the key military figures. The sites are good, and the publisher's pledge to keep all links active for three years beyond publication of the books makes them quite serviceable. The question becomes the use of these volumes. Most students would rather go straight to a computer, bypassing the extra step of reading a book of links, to search online for themselves. The books might appeal to librarians and teachers looking to create their own set of hyperlinks for students.-Elizabeth M.
