Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
One of eight books in the "The U.S. Armed Forces" series, this title highlights interesting and pertinent information for young and old alike. Special Forces include the Green Berets, Rangers, and Night Stalkers. Information about equipment, weapons, and vehicles are included, as well as the kinds of possible missions and Special Ops Jobs. Red captions and labels allow readers or students looking at pictures to understand the information immediately. Blazer Facts add extra information to several pages. Action photos of real occurrences enhance the overall package which includes a glossary, additional resources, a Fact Hound update, and an index. The book's reading level is pegged as grade 2 while the interest level is geared to grades 3 through 9 even though older readers may find the minimal text to be too elementary for them. Two to three word paragraphs make up a complete page and many of the pages include two photos per page. An interesting Blazer Fact says that each of the Special Forces soldiers can speak at least one language besides English. Include this book with the set for classrooms and libraries. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 7 to 12.
