Review
(The following is a combined review for Weapons, Gear, and Uniforms of the American Revolution; Weapons, Gear, and Uniforms of World War II; Weapons, Gear, and Uniforms of the Civil War; Weapons, Gear, and Uniforms of World War I.; Weapons, Gear, and Uniforms of the Iraq War; Weapons, Gear, and Uniforms of the Vietnam War; and ) Gr 4 – 6 — Every volume offers a short introduction to its featured war, followed by chapters on equipment. Each section contains several paragraphs about specific pieces of equipment, machinery, and uniforms, many of them illustrated. The books have no conclusions; instead back matter follows immediately after the final equipment description. The extreme brevity of the introductions and the lack of context for the discussions of these weapons are problematic. Vietnam blithely describes flamethrowers as "useful" and able to "clear a tunnel of enemies," while World War II describes knives used by the Allied forces that "could take out enemies quickly and quietly." The introduction in Iraq War mentions WMDs as a reason for entering the war without revealing that none were found. These volumes don't stand alone but might be considered where there is demand for highly visual works on the military. --Eric Norton (Reviewed April 1, 2012) (School Library Journal, vol 58, issue 04, p120)
