Synopsis: World War II defined the lives of a generation and shaped the modern world. This new series gives readers an accessible summary of the war and an understanding of what the experience was like for those who lived through it-from the perspective of soldiers, generals, nurses, politicians and civilians.
From School Library Journal: Gr 7-10-Although titled "The Full Story," this set is better described as an undistinguished general introduction. Volumes cover the causes; home fronts; military campaigns; air, land and sea wars; and lasting effects of the war, but at 48 pages per book, they provide almost no in-depth coverage of topics or analysis of events. There are no maps to help readers locate the many places mentioned in the text, which uses military jargon and descriptions of tactics without adequate introduction. Very brief sidebars add a few sentences about "key" people, events, themes, and eyewitness accounts. Period photos are generic and below average in quality and reproduction. VERDICT These selections introduce so many topics, people, battles, and events that students are as likely to become confused as informed, and they don't improve on the many extant titles available about World War II.α(c) Copyright 2011.
