Gr 6-9Unlike most nonfiction presentations, this one encourages readers to participate-to become field marshals and to interact with history. Young commanders must utilize the background data provided, develop a strategy, and make a decision. Aaseng covers the British at New Orleans, 1815; the Prussians at Waterloo; the U.S. in Mexico, 1847; the Allied Army in Crimea, 1854; the Army of Northern Virginia at Gettysburg; Custer's demise at Little Bighorn; and the Boer Army in the Natal, 1899. At the end of each chapter, questions are posed with possible options. The actual battle plans are provided along with the results. This easy-to-use, provocative study features maps and black-and-white reproductions. Guaranteed to delight military enthusiasts.L. R. Little, Penticton Public Library, B.C., Canada
