Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Named after two Medal of Honor winners, the Stryker armored personnel carrier has received notoriety for its service in Iraq and Afghanistan. Designed to be a high speed armored vehicle, the Stryker was crafted as an upgrade from the up-armored Humvees and a complement to the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. In this illustrated book, youngsters are given an up close and personal look at this relatively new addition to the American arsenal. In telling the story of the Stryker, author Hamilton takes his readers through the mechanical design, utilization, technology, and service requirements of a complicated mobile weapons system. Hamilton also targets the training and skills needed by the men who man Strykers in combat theaters. This approach yields an illustrated book that tells the story of a significant asset that serves American servicemen well. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
