Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In the annals of American history there is perhaps no more controversial subject than the Vietnam War. America's longest conflict, the Vietnam War began as a reflection of American opposition to international communism and concluded as one of the most socially divisive issues in the nation's history. The Vietnam War years were marked by sharp political division, virulent anti-war protests, intergenerational distrust, and violence. Most people who were adults during those years will surely have some emotional residues that can be traced back to those years of upheaval. In Letters from the Battlefront: The Vietnam War Virginia Schomp focuses upon American military history. In this compelling book the author follows a format common across the series. A history of the Vietnam War encompasses the bulk of the story while the author also cunningly includes letters from Vietnam veterans to enhance the feeling tone of the narrative. This combination of a strong base of fact with the heartfelt words of participants in the war results in a stellar book. Indeed, while the "Letters from the Battlefront" series is uniformly sound this particular volume is the strongest one in the continuum. The author has dedicated this book to a relative who served in Vietnam. The obvious connection felt with the events has helped Schomp produce a commendable and fitting epitaph for the men and women who fought in a war that left such a bitter taste in the collective mouths of America. 2004, Marshall Cavendish, Ages 12 up.

Gr 5-8-Each book opens with an introduction about the origins of the conflict. Chapters are devoted to the public's initial reactions to the war, its effects on blacks and on women, and to the societal divisions that grew as the fighting continued. A short conclusion discusses its legacy. Numerous excerpts from letters and other documents are woven into the narratives or are used as illustrative material. Coverage is objective, especially for the Vietnam War. The volumes are illustrated with black-and-white and color photos and period art. While both books purportedly cover the wartime home fronts, Civil War is more focused; however, Duane Damon's When This Cruel War Is Over: The Civil War Home Front (Lerner, 1996) is slightly more readable. Vietnam reads like a general history of the 1960s, with chapters on the civil rights and women's movements that barely mention the war. Most titles on the Vietnam War provide as much coverage of the war at home, especially the protest movements, as does this one. Optional purchases based on demand.-Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
