Editorial Reviews

Review

“For teens, or anyone, learning about the history of WWII, Benjamin Mack-Jackson’s new book is the place to start! As an educator for more than 30 years, I appreciate material that allows students to learn a layer at a time for topics as complex as WWII. Most students will benefit from the pace at which the author moves this real-life drama along while providing just enough detail to pique curiosity. World War II History for Teens enables the reader to see multiple perspectives of the war without being overwhelmed with details. Teens who read this book will have a big-picture view of WWII that allows for a better understanding of all future knowledge they acquire about this epic global conflict that still affects our lives today.” ―Lou Ring Sangdahl, teacher and instructional coach with a focus on project-based learning

“Benjamin Mack-Jackson has devoted himself to the preservation of veterans' stories, and has used his expertise to craft a highly readable and informative history of World War II for a teen audience. This book will serve as an excellent resource and inspire readers to continue learning about this complex and important conflict.” ―Chris Juergens, PhD, Anschutz assistant curator of military history and heritage at History Colorado

“Benjamin Mack-Jackson tells a compelling version of World War II through a unique and meticulous investigation, conducting interviews with more than 100 WWII vets. Throughout the novel, he helps teens make the connections to not only understand WWII but to also appreciate the impact it had on America and the world.” ―Jamie Berry, social studies teacher

About the Author

BENJAMIN MACK-JACKSON is an author, documentary filmmaker, historian, and storyteller capturing and preserving the memories of the last surviving World War II veterans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for teens!
By LegoGirl on June 22, 2021
I understand this is labeled "For Teens" to give the buyer a hint that it's not some super-comprehensive scholarly deep dive into WWII, but that label really sells it short. Just 135 pages (plus references/notes), but the author does a great job balancing overview with interesting detail and thoughtful commentary.

Too many high schools never make it to WWII in history class, or gloss over it quickly because of other topics deemed more relevant today; a book like this can fill the gaps and give the reader enough understanding of WWII to engage in social conversation and understand movies and news better.

I also appreciate that this book is focused on information, not opinion, or extreme politics. There are sections titled "Up For Debate" throughout, where a possibly-controversial or simply gray-area topic is presented for the reader to consider themselves (see photo for an example).

Highly recommend! A fun and informative read for anyone!
