Description-

  • On June 6, 1944, Private First Class Michael Donovan and 13,000 U.S. Paratroopers soar over the English Channel toward their Drop Zone in enemy-occupied France. Their mission: capture the town of Carentan from the Germans and secure an operations base for Allied forces. Suddenly, the sky explodes with anti-aircraft fire, and Donovan's C-47 Skytrain is hit! Within moments, the troops exit the aircraft and plummet toward a deadly destination. On the ground, Donovan finds himself alone in the Lion's Den without food, shelter, or a weapon. In order to survive, the rookie soldier must rely on his instincts and locate his platoon before time runs out.

    Gr 4-6-These titles follow members of the Donovan family and their wartime experiences. In the first novel, PFC Michael Donovan is a paratrooper in World War II. He narrowly escapes being killed by German soldiers on D-Day. Control follows Michael's grandnephew, Lester, a Navy SEAL in Afghanistan. He has just been promoted to commanding officer of his team. They are returning from a successful mission capturing a top-ranking Taliban officer when their Blackhawk helicopters are shot down. Most of the men die, two are captured, and Lester and another man are left for dead. They escape the wreckage and go on to save their captured team members. Each story begins with a brief overview of the war and illustrations of the gear the servicemen wore. Chapters are separated by "Debriefing" spreads that are illustrated with archival photos, describe equipment, and continue the history of the conflict. Color comic-book-style illustrations appear throughout. These books are easy to read, take a serious look at war, and do not glamorize killing or death. Set in small type, the factual sections, however, may be a little too dense for the intended audience.-Erik Carlson, White Plains Public Library, NY

  • DOGO Books aidenblazebaker - I give this book a 4. I do this because it had a pretty good story to it. But also could have had a better ending and more details. Also could have had been longer.

    Grades 4-6 The fictional Bloodlines series focuses on the recollections of men from an American family who fought twentieth- and twenty-first-century wars. This title focuses on the experiences of Michael Donovan, who was a paratrooper during the Normandy invasion. The story is cut from a familiar war-story template, with the young private first hiding from the enemy but then finding his courage after the death of the avuncular sergeant. Despite the clich's, however, many young readers will enjoy this. The format draws elements from comics, with large fonts denoting explosions, plenty of blazing guns, and men with impossibly square jaws. Added to the package are frequently inserted period photographs and facts about WWII. There are a few fact-checking glitches: one page lists the Allied powers but leaves out the Soviet Union. Still, the additions of bite-size nonfiction give this book extra historical heft. A good choice for reluctant readers.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2011, American Library Association.)
