Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Books in the Life in the Military series (6 titles) generally begin with facts relevant to a particular branch of the armed forces and then launch into a narrative in which a unit carries out a perilous mission. After identifying that military branch's objectives and organization, the text discusses enlistment, education, and training, and describes a few combat and support jobs as well as daily life on bases. The final chapter deals with deployment. Throughout the series, the most noticeable feature of the text is the use of wide-spaced lines and short sentences, usually between 4 and 12 words. Clear, colorful photos and other helpful graphics appear throughout the books. In Air Force, pie charts illustrate the proportion of women to men and officers to enlisted personnel. Designated by the publisher for YA reluctant readers, the books will interest teens seeking attractive, simply written introductions to career options in military service."
