Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–8
These titles discuss the military actions that began and ended American involvement in the Second World War. Each book is divided into two-page chapters that open with accounts of the bomb blast at Hiroshima and the attack on Pearl Harbor, respectively. Tames then traces what lead up to and the aftermaths of the two attacks and objectively analyzes their historical impacts. The books end with a single-page "Great Debate," listing bulleted arguments for and against the use of the atomic bomb and the merits of nuclear power (Hiroshima ), and the wisdom of the attack on the U.S. Naval base in Hawaii and the role of this country as world policeman (Pearl Harbor ). "Find Out More" bibliographies open with suggested keywords for Internet searches, followed by recommendations of mainly Heinemann titles. The illustrations are the volumes' strongest points. Each one includes several good maps, and there is at least one photo or illustration on each page. However, since the books are brief and the font is large, coverage and analysis are so severely limited as to be superficial. They may draw browsers, but will do little to help students understand these important events. Nathan Anthony and Robert Gardner's The Bombing of Pearl Harbor in American History (Enslow, 2001) and Victoria Sherrow's Hiroshima (New Discovery, 1994) offer more detailed information and better analysis.
