Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Elwood-Akers is a librarian at California State Univ., Northridge. Twelve articles by various women survey the war chronologically. About 75 women correspondents reported from Vietnam. Elwood-Akers emphasizes their diversity, rejecting the idea that women have a distinctive point of view on war. Each article is preceded by some history and biography. Photos. These five titles (see preceding entries) are nicely produced, smoothly readable, and interesting stories for the adult beginning reader. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
