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. Somewhat different in its approach, Special Operations introduces a number of elite combat forces, such as the Army Delta Force, Navy Seals, Marine Raiders, and Air Force Air Commandos, and offers examples of their missions. Designated by the publisher for YA reluctant readers, the books will interest teens seeking attractive, simply written introductions to career options in military service."
