About the Author:

Marcia Amidon Lusted has written 130 books and more than 500 magazine articles for young readers. She is a freelance editor and writing instructor, as well as a musician. She lives in New Hampshire.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-7-These eye-catching titles, each written in five short chapters, will be attractive to reluctant readers. All begin dramatically with an exotic setting, an emergency situation, and/or figures exhibiting daring military skills. The second chapter places the special unit in a historical context, and the following sections flesh out the roles the unit members play within their branch and in the military as a whole. The books conclude with a chapter on training and education. The risks and destructive nature of the jobs aren't sugarcoated, but the texts are not graphic. Transitions between chapters are smooth, though the language is sometimes stilted. The writing is filled with acronyms that are, unfortunately, often not included in the glossary. Sprinkled throughout the chapters are text boxes with definitions and additional information, quotations, and anecdotes about real operations. The clear photos are well captioned. α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
