Nothing tells a story better than a well photographed picture. The photos of the Holocaust victims inside this skinny book on The Great War will leave a lasting impression on the reader. Having visited Buchenwald myself as a young girl, I know my own students will be shocked and will never view the world in quite the same way after learning about the horrid details of one of the greatest crimes in the history of mankind. Oh, and the incidental history of the war is also cove

Each element of this historical era is given its own section with strong colored headings and bold subheadings. There are

I have a lot more questions about WWII after reading this book. I still want to explore the CDrom that came with it. It certainly piqued my interest in the topic. I really had to work at reading this book and kept a notebook of questions, which slowed my reading down, but helped keep me interested and focused. I wish there were more maps. Liked the timeline at the end. Used the glossary even when I thought I knew the word. Built up my war lingo.

I liked how the book was structured. In every other page there was a small text box that contained key words and their definition. I believe that this book was really informational in respect to WWII. It had good images to match the text. I liked the fact that this book focused in all the countries and not just the US.
