Living Through . . . Series by Heinemann

Series Review
This set summarizes events in major conflicts using brief first-person accounts, sidebars, short biographies, color and archival photos, maps, and other graphics. While most of these wars are inde-pendent of one another, some do cover overlapping time periods and therefore these titles do duplicate information. The authors’ presentations of these conflicts are balanced, with views from multiple perspectives. They don’t shy away from the more gruesome and shameful events, such as the Holocaust, the My Lai massacre, and Abu Ghraib. There is also some coverage of antiwar movements and the lives of noncombatants. It is refreshing to find some wars that traditionally receive less coverage included in this series. These volumes should be useful for report writers and satisfying to curious readers.
