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
