Review
(The following is a combined review for The Army Rangers; The Delta Force; The Green Berets; The Navy SEALs; and ) Gr 2 – 4 — The first chapter of each title is a contrived scenario in which the featured special force challenges a foe and is victorious in a matter of two pages. Content is limited though vocabulary is relatively good. Unfamiliar words are printed in blue in a large font and defined in boxes at the bottom of the page, as well as in a glossary. Most of the photos have an "erased spot" with a "FACT" printed in it. Some readers will notice that in Green Berets there is only one photo of anyone wearing a beret, and it is black. In Delta Force , a caption describes a photo of a group of Middle Eastern men as containing a "gorilla" (meaning guerrilla). Bits of text in each title are similar, though not quite verbatim. Students, having read one book, will essentially have read all four. References to Afghanistan and to the Taliban will rapidly date these titles. The simple story lines and easy reading level do not salvage them.—Eldon Younce, Anthony Public Library, KS --Eldon Younce (Reviewed June 1, 2011) (School Library Journal, vol 57, issue 6, p100)
