From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-10-Lace profiles eight of the most prominent leaders of World War II, including Erwin Rommel, Georgi Zhukov, Erich von Manstein, Yamamoto Isoroku, Douglas MacArthur, Chester Nimitz, Dwight Eisenhower, and Bernard Law Montgomery. Approximately 10 pages are devoted to each man's life and military career. Special talents and personal shortcomings are noted. Wukovits describes the life of American infantrymen as they fought on the fronts of Western Europe from 1941 to 1945. The well-organized text describes basic training, the soldiers' initial battle experience, the Normandy Invasion, and the Battle of the Bulge. The role of medics, nurses, the Red Cross, and entertainers and general living conditions of the infantry are discussed in detail. Both volumes are liberally illustrated with good-quality, captioned, archival black-and-white photos. Thorough research is indicated by the prolific use of personal letters and other primary sources, and footnotes are extensive. Both of these titles present new material in a manner that readers will appreciate.-Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
