About this title

Synopsis:

It was the war to end all wars, one of the largest and deadliest conflicts in human history. Readers will find out how America used its brave men and military technology to come out on top in World War I. Readers will explore the world of military machines and the science behind the United States victories against the Germans. Full-color photographs will show readers the artillery, tanks, and guns that powered the American attack. Firsthand accounts from soldiers who developed and operated these weapons will help readers understand how the development and application of technology can mean the difference between winning and losing the biggest battles in history.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6-Though one sided in focusing chiefly on the weaponry of the United States and its allies (and disingenuous in the inclusion of Vietnam War under this series title), these galleries offer a varied, browser-tempting smorgasbord of wheeled, floating, and flying vehicles, as well as hand and even chemical weapons. Each of the 20 alphabetically arranged entries includes one-to-three captioned photos or reproductions, most of which show the selected weapon in action, along with an "Eyewitness" comment from an actual user or a sidebar, and brief remarks about the weapon's development, history, strengths, and (rare in galleries of military gear aimed at younger audiences) weaknesses. Better for browsers, but the print and web resources will be helpful to readers with a sustained interest. α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
