Grade 5-9-- The chief weakness with The Trojan War is that the legendary aspect of the story is not emphasized. The first two pages go into some discussion of the historical versus mythical aspects of the war, but after that the book tells of Helen's beauty, Achilles' strength, Apollo's wrath, etc., mixing up fact with fiction. The book ends up resembling a shortened, statically illustrated "Cliff Notes" version of the Illiad . El Alamein does what it sets out to do. It gives a brief, readable, account of the events leading up to this significant World War II battle and the strategy of the battle itself. No aspect of the fighting is covered in great detail. Many maps, diagrams, photographs, and drawings are included, although in a few cases the captions are somewhat confusing. More annoying is the fact that some terms are boldfaced in the texts and then defined in the glossary. Most readers will grow impatient with having to flip back and forth for the definitions. --Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Public Library, IL
