Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
If you are old enough to remember living through the Vietnam War you probably can recall the bitterness, divisions, and national alienation that were part and parcel of that bloody conflict. For a period of over a decade American advisors, and then combat troops, took part in a Vietnamese civil war that claimed over two million lives. During the Vietnam War American troops took part in search and destroy missions, utilized massive bombing of civilian population centers, invaded neighboring nations, and spread toxic chemicals over hundreds of thousands of acres of land. Ultimately, American forces were withdrawn from Vietnam thus precipitating the fairly rapid destruction of our former South Vietnamese allies. This complex and sad war is the subject of this title in the illustrated “Essential Library of American Wars” series. Gitlin takes his readers back through the precursor historical events that eventually led to the dispatch of over 540,000 American servicemen and women to Vietnam. In telling this complicated and ultimately futile story, Gitlin presents more than just the factual superstructure of history. Beyond the facts, the author incorporates the thoughts, words, and deeds of everyday people to create a story that does justice to the tangled topic at hand. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck; Ages 13 up.

    For the preteen and teen who enjoys reading about war, this series will be a welcome addition to a library. Each of the books includes background information about the causes of the war and the cultural divide that caused politics to classh with the common folk. Black and white and color photos help the reader see the reality that is combat. A timeline, map, list of key players, and glossary are included. This title gives a fair amount of detail about the anti-war movement. A solid purchase.
