Praise for Other books in the Series:

The Vietnam War by Barbara Diggs
School Library Connections
The author does not shy from describing the deception and dishonesty prevalent among these central players, and the key events of the war are explained, complete with their importance. The highlight of the book is its interactive aspect. Numerous sidebars ask students to consider critical questions, Vocab Lab invites readers to compile and practice vocabulary, and codes can be scanned to lead students to additional information such as Ho's Declaration of Independence, propaganda cartoons, and relevant speeches. Bibliography. Glossary. Recommended

School Library Journal
A well-organized and succinct work to accompany U.S. history units. The book follows the trajectory of the Vietnam War and includes vocabulary labs at the end of each chapter, project ideas (writing a song or poem about a current political/social concern), investigative questions and points to ponder or debate. The writing is concise with relevant sources and differing points of view. Tech enthusiasts will like the inclusion of QR codes with primary source videos and documents. VERDICT: This text could be used as a supplemental study guide for dedicated students.

The Children's War
"What sets this new work from Nomad Press apart from so many other books about WWI for young people is the stress on using primary sources. I can't recommend this book highly enough."
Ms. Yingling Reads
This is a short but very informative book jam packed with information.
