    One thought on “Battle of the Bulge [The Young Readers Adaptation]”

    1. E ARC from NetgalleyDo you have boys who frequent your library who are keenly interested in WWII? There are fewer now than there were, but it is still a topic that inspires a level of fanaticism other topics do not. Our school curriculum no longer covers this era, but the books still circulate well. This new book is a youth oriented reworking of part of this author's Guns at Last Light, just as the companion volume, D-Day, is. This is a tremendous resource for readers with an avid interest. Key [...]

    2. Judging from my stats, there are still a lot of readers interested in books about WWII. Like me, most are interested in fiction and stories of courage and survival, whether they take place in countries under Nazi occupation/siege, near the front lines, or are stories about the home front. Not many really seem want to read the details of military strategy or battles fought. But sometimes a book like that comes along and the author has made it so interesting, it appeals to everyone. Pulitzer Prize [...]

    3. Nice Content, but Poor PresentationThis book was reviewed as part of 's Vine program which included a free advance copy of the book.Pulled from historian Rick Atkinson’s “The Guns at Last Light” (the third segment of his excellent World War II trilogy), BATTLE OF THE BULGE is designed to educate younger readers about America’s epic final battle in Western Europe. While I feel the book does a fine job condensing the nuts and bolts of Hitler’s Ardennes offensive, I felt the book’s pres [...]

    4. WWII is one of those always topics that gets covered a lot, usually in weird detail, and from multiple angles. Then comes along an adaptation for younger readers on a very specific battle from a longer nonfiction book meant for an adult audience. What I'm getting at is, given the popularity of the subject matter and the specific nature of this exact book, why not just write something original?What I do like is the short chapters within the sections. They are young reader friendly. There are a lo [...]

    5. My son got this book for Christmas and I picked it up and read it because, well, that's what I tend to do. 60 million deaths worldwide. That is 19 for every minute of the war.1/27/44 Soviet forces break the German 900-day siege of Leningrad during which more than one million civilians dies of starvation."At least a few officers wondered whether the time had come to allow black GIs to serve in white rifle companies, but even under there circumstances that radical notion found few champions in the [...]

    6. It was a great book. The pictures really helped me picture the destruction that happened. I really like the "Kilroy Was Here"drawings. It troubles me with the slaughter that happened during the battle of the bugle.

    7. This book about WW2 I read about half way through with my lad but it was getting to be too real for him, and he wasn't ready for all the details in this book as much as he was interested in it. It is loaded with TONS of historical facts and lots of black and white pictures. Those, as I continued to read the book, I would show my boy, particularly the ones with men working cannons, and hiding in the snow, and what not. The chapters are, for the most part, short and easily read. They are very deta [...]

    8. I received this book for free through the Giveaway program.This hisory of the Battle of the Bulge is intended for readers aged 8-12 and is an adaptation of Atkinson's final volume of his World War II trilogy.This book is highly recommended for younger readers who have curiosity about World War II. Indeed, the layout of the book should motivate many youngsters who might be reluctant to read history,accounts of war or specific battles. First, the large number of archival photographs,many taken by [...]

    9. If WWII is a high interest of yours or if you homeschool this is a great resource. This gives extensive detail on characters of interest with tactics and reasoning behind them. There are also many pictures which help grasp the knowledge given within the book. This is not something I generally read but I found it very interesting and I have passed this book on to someone who does homeschooling with her children and she was very excited about it. Rick Atkinson covered everything imaginable and the [...]

    10. I am an adult who prefers to read the "Young Readers Adaptation" of non-fiction. The author, while talking about troop shortages, pointed out that even under these circumstances, the generals didn't allow African-American soldiers to fight alongside White American soldiers. This was a nice touch, that reminds readers just what a different world view they had. Also, Kurt Vonnegut gets mentioned, and a quote from him, as a captured soldier is included. This might be a great non-fiction tie-in afte [...]

    11. Interesting story for children or anyone interested in WWII. Lots of information - timeline, photos, key players of this battle. I think it would be better for older readers but if 4th, 5th, or 6th graders are good readers they will like this book. A good book for those needing to do a report. Short chapters and lots of photos make this book more accessible to reluctant readers.

    12. Excellent History of the final big battle in Europe. Written is an easy, but detailed style. Rick is one of the best WW2 writers.

    13. I think it was awesome with the fighting, also I liked the accounts and views as the Germans try to make a win against the Americans in the cold winter
