What Readers Say

Absolutely fantastic books for boys.

~ Chad

Got this for my 9 yr old son as a gift. He finished it in one day…couldn’t put it down he told me. This is a boy who has comprehension issues and I’m finding it’s due to the material. If he doesn’t enjoy it he glosses over the words and doesn’t remember a thing. This book he was able to answer all kinds of questions and prompted more research for questions he had.

I bought this book for my Grandson (who is 10 years old) and he has been bypassing his game time to continue reading the book. He really enjoys reading about the different wars. The book is very well written.

~ Robert

By son is 10 and just can’t seem to find a book series after DogMan. He loves vintage planes so I ordered this and he hasn’t put it down. Read to me while I was driving. I think we found his series!

There are two things I really like about this book; first, it is historically accurate. The information is given in a well thought out manner that makes it easy for anyone to enjoy and understand. The author paints a clear picture of what is going on in each battle. The second thing, which I love, is that the stories, although complete in themselves, do leave you wanting, and Joe Giorello has made that easy by referencing other books, films and best of all, website links, to more in-depth information.

~ Sturgeon

I was pleased to finally find an historical series written for young boys that neither “cartoonizes” war nor adopts a satirical, demeaning tone. Rather, these books depict the true sacrifices of the men involved in these conflicts. The facts are the facts. There is no politically correct hogwash clouding the child’s view of the event.

History above and beyond what’s taught in class

~ Lisa S

My son loves this book! We are using this as an American History supplement in homeschooling this year. My son has really enjoyed this book.

~ Firecat

Excellent! Bought one for our 12 year-old son for Christmas, and he asked us to buy the rest, ASAP. Perfect for his age—he doesn’t like to read a lot, but he is re-reading these and happy to tell us all about them.
