Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
One hundred years ago the nations of Europe proudly marched into the teeth of world war. Driven by a combination of pride, blind nationalism, old grievances, ego, and a complex and self-destructive alliance system, the great powers of Europe launched what would come to be known as World War I. In Everything World War I Karen Kennedy takes the lead in crafting a potpourri of information about this “War to end all wars.” Kennedy approaches her subject in a topical matter with separate chapters on the home front, causes of the war, soldier’s experiences, and the weapons that made World War I so destructive. Throughout the text, numerous period photographs and illustrations are used to amplify the author’s messages. Of particular interest are the many inserts providing human-interest stories or telling little-known tales from the war. Additionally, historian Edward Lengel includes a fascinating essay dealing with his and his son’s own discoveries while walking on the Verdun battlefield. This approach is successful and results are a book that will serve well as an introduction to so vast and tragic a subject as the Great War. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck; Ages 10 to 14.
