Library Journal - Library Journal
Popular history has brought an awareness of the past to countless more readers and students than the scholarly works which fill our shelves. Few publications have been as consistently successful in introducing Americans to their past as the staff and writers of American Heritage . The three works considered here all consist of essays from previous issues. Eyewitness to World War II is a dramatic ``you are there'' collection by prominent officers as well as common soldiers, sailors, and airmen. The Civil War and World War II include similar articles, but most of the writers are historians. All three books are useful introductions that can be enjoyed by readers ranging from above average sixth graders on up. Libraries with a complete run of American Heritage may wish to hold off. Worthwhile, but not essential.-- John R. Vallely, Siena Coll. Lib., Loudonville, N.Y.
