From School Library Journal:

Gr 7-9-The words of ordinary citizens and soldiers are used to convey the hardships and brutality of America's Asian wars. Both books follow the same design, beginning with a description of a dramatic event and then backtracking to provide an overview of each conflict. This is a promising format, but there are several weaknesses. There is not enough background information to help readers understand American involvement in these wars. While both books present an adequate survey of war operations, they do not devote enough space to post-war events (Vietnam does not even cover the fall of Saigon). They do not offer the analysis and historical perspective found in most other titles about these conflicts. Each book includes a single map, and the black-and-white and color photos add little to the text. Deborah Bachrach's The Korean War (Lucent, 1991) and Maurice Isserman's The Korean War (Facts on File, 1992) are more complete resources. Albert Marrin's powerful America in Vietnam (Viking, 1992) remains the best YA title on the subject, and David Detzer's An Asian Tragedy (Millbrook, 1992) is a good choice for younger readers.-Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO
