9780778751007: Infantry Soldiers (World's Most Dangerous Jobs)

The backbone of any army, infantry soldiers seem to get all of the action but none of the glory. Trained for the very physical and aggressive work of engaging the enemy on the ground, the infantry tends to take high casualties in combat. This book looks at the high-risk jobs of the infantry soldier, including attack, defense, patrol, and intelligence gathering.

From Booklist:

This latest batch of titles from the World’s Most Dangerous Jobs series is so dangerous, a police officer seems the safest choice. Although each volume has a picture-book length and features oversize pages, the content is gritty, reflecting the topic in both words and pictures. Large color photographs, taken in war zones and disaster areas with workers shown in their protective gear and weapons prominently displayed, are ample. Meanwhile, the tone is clear and factual, with many primary-source quotes pulled out and featured. Occasionally, the UK roots of the series are noticeable, such as when using the word torch for flashlight and depicting vehicles as being steered on the right. Infantry Soldiers discusses the attacks soldiers face and the stress they are constantly under. The design sometimes makes the text a little hard to read, and the books lack source notes. Still, these are compelling reading for reluctant readers and risk-takers alike. Grades 4-7. --Susan Dove Lempke
