Reviews

School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

“These eye-catching titles, each written in five short chapters, will be attractive to reluctant readers….The risks and destructive nature of the jobs aren’t sugarcoated, but the texts are not graphic.” —School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

VOYA

“The best feature of the series is its full-color photos that allow readers to see the soldiers in action….Readers curious about military Special Forces, including how troops are selected, trained, and equipped, will read these books for leisure.” —VOYA
