A rousing collection of war stories, Flynn's compendium serves multiple educational purposes. A superb balance of text, photos, maps, and chronology illustrates complex military deeds and their outcomes. As a guided reader, the two-page chapters offer suitable breaks for the adventure lover who savors one thrill packed episode at a time. A mix of familiar history (Trojan War, World War II, 9/11) and lesser-known events in Norway, Falkland Islands, Agincourt, and Greece expands the range of periods, conflicts, and locales. As a teaching tool for individualized reading and homeschooling, this work is ideal for the reluctant learner. . . This book deserves a place in public and school libraries and as a gift for the action minded bibliophile.--Mary Ellen Snodgrass"VOYA" (02/01/2015)
