School Library Journal - School Library Journalea. vol: 32p. glossary. index. (Soldier Through the Ages Series). Watts. Oct. 1986. PLB $10.40. Gr 4-6 Brief, easy to understand explanations of various aspects of these two wars. World War I begins with a simplified version of how the war began in Europe, while World War II begins with the entry of the United States into the conflict. The terms Tommy and GI are defined in the respective volumes. The life of the soldier and military equipment are the main topics of the text. Specific battles are not discussed. Both volumes contain full-color illustrations on every page, and the dark shades give the books a somber appearance. Many of the illustrations have detailed captions that add a great deal to the text. Both volumes conclude with a glossary and a brief time-chart. Two good additions to collections needing introductory material in these areas. Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, Kans.
