Review

Praise for Chris Lynch's World War II series:

* "An expertly crafted war story with fluid prose, bleak humor, careful attention to historic detail, and a view of 'The Good War' worth pondering." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"All the sizzle, chaos, noise and scariness of war is clay in the hands of ace storyteller Lynch." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Though aimed at younger readers, Lynch doesn't write down, instead offering a powerful taste of war on a personal level." -- Publishers Weekly


Praise for Chris Lynch's Vietnam series:

"The best Vietnam War novels yet for this age range." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Lynch brilliantly captures the war in small details." -- Booklist

"A fine balance of thoughtfulness and gritty action." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

I bought this for the library at my school. The series stays checked out all the time. Once they read the first one, they come back for the others. I have a waiting list, and we have more than one copy of each book.

This was a very good read. They really portray the life of a soldier in Vietnam well and set the scenery and background noise. This all adds up and really allows the reader to envision what it feels and sounds like during the Vietnam Conflict. I would recommend this book to young adults and over.

Like always Chris lynch writes yet another great book. But he has too cool it with the cliff hangers. Please I can't take the suspense. But definitely better than the first.

Exciting and dramatic. Easy to read. My 13 year old is very interested in the armed services and found it very interesting. He is continuing on with the entire series.
