Editorial Reviews

This review was written and published to address two slim books are part of a four-book series that describe the events surrounding a single battle that opened a war. In The Firing on Ft. Sumter: A Splintered Nation Goes to War, Colbert begins with a careful description of the circumstances that inevitably made Fort Sumter such a point of contention between northern and southern factions. In The Shot Heard Round the World: The Battles of Lexington and Concord, Whitelaw begins her book with a detailed account of the Boston Massacre and goes on to lay out the political background of the times that led up to the famous battles of Lexington and Concord. The writing is lively and interesting, and the information is presented clearly and in detail. The only serious deficiency in these two books can be found in the maps. Each book contains one map of the area in which the battle occurred. Unfortunately the black-and-white map of the Fort Sumter area fails to show any details of the fort itself. The bibliography in Firing on Ft. Sumter includes Web sites and has a list of Web sites that lead students to further exploration. Such a list is not included in the book on Lexington and Concord. These two books are good resources that cover their specific subjects well. Other books in the series cover the battles that began the Spanish-American War and World War II. Recommended as additions to otherwise well-rounded subject collections, they will be popular for report writers. Index. Illus. Photos. Maps. Biblio. Source Notes. Appendix.

School Library Journal
Gr 5-7-Highlighting the early part of the Revolutionary period, this book clearly defines the changing political climate of the times. Whitelaw starts with the Boston Massacre and chronicles the events that led to dissatisfaction with the British and eventually to war. Samuel Adams commands center stage as each rebellious act is countered by a punishment from the British. Notable events are detailed in each chapter, with military strategy becoming more prevalent as the book unfolds. Suspense builds as spies on both sides participate in intrigue and duplicity. Students will be drawn into the exciting adventures made famous by the Sons of Liberty and Paul Revere. The black-and-white reproductions enliven the text, although a few, including a map of Boston in 1776, are somewhat grainy and indistinct. In a nice touch, the appendix gives a one- or two-sentence biography of the famous leaders mentioned in the book. Deborah Kent's Lexington and Concord (Children's, 1998) is geared to younger children and does not delve deeply into the history that brought about the War.-Ilene Abramson, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
