Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Soldiers on the front line and in the face of danger meet with threatening situations every day. How do they survive? Excellent training and the will to survive give them an edge. In this book from the "Extreme Survival" series, readers can discover remarkable ways soldiers are put to the test. Physical and mental training are discussed. An informative chart compares U.S. physical fitness training standards with British physical standards related to push-ups, sit-ups, and running distances. Special SERE (survival, evasion, resistance, and escape) training is highlighted along with techniques that captors may use with a captured soldier. Especially interesting is a close-up photo of two soldiers dressed in camouflage. They look exactly like bushes! The author's well-researched text is written concisely and paced to move along swiftly. Appeal of the book will be strong for both boys and girls who are curious about the military and survival. Fascinating photos enhance the text. Charts and illustrations such as the one that traces paths of how rescue planes make a search are worth studying. Readers will come away with a strong sense of understanding how soldiers make it in times of distress. This book is written at a fifth grade level but will appeal to a wider range of students—consider it for reluctant readers and "high-low" settings. It contains a glossary, index, and up-to-date resources. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
