My almost 12 year old history hating son is eating these up! I will be buying a lot more of the series for him!
My sons have been playing a computer game that simulates WWII tanks. When I heard them talking about tanks and battles while not even playing, I saw a teaching opportunity. But I didn't want to drag out the textbooks and bore them into hating history. So I found this "comic". My younger son (12) sat down and read it immediately all the way through. His older brother read it later in the week. They both enjoyed it and found it interesting. We recommend it.
Bought this comic book as an Easter basket stuffer for my 9 year old son. He is into history, especially anything to do with wars and military. I would not recommend it for a classroom though, as other poster stated. It is definitely more entertainment with a bit of learning. Don't get me wrong, it is fact based, but it doesn't tell every fact. There isn't enough room-it is a comic book style book.
