From School Library Journal:

Grade 8-12-- Dolan traces the history of the MIA movement through presidential commissions and family activism. The writing is matter-of-fact and generally simple and clear , although there are a few confusing passages. This is a story told through sympathetic eyes (Dolan calls it a drama). What becomes very clear is the chaos and heartbreaking legacy of war made worse by bureaucratic snafus and foot dragging. It is apparent from this account that MIAs have remained a cause partially because of the politically charged nature of the Vietnam War. This book helps to counter Hollywood's exploitation of POWs and MIAs by revealing that the only MIAs to come home in well over ten years have been in the form of bone fragments and bodies. This is a curious, yet logically presented, book about an emotional topic. While magazine articles cover this subject adequately, the book will be useful where there is a high degree of interest in this topic. The diplomatic chronology is helpful. Black-and-white photographs are included, but do little to clarify or extend the text. --Steve Matthews, Foxcroft School, Middleburg, Va.
