MEDIA REVIEWS
Dramatic storytelling ... action-packed illustrations.--The Canadian Children's Book Center"Best Books for Kids & Teens 2008" (01/01/2008)
There is not much written on military history of the Renaissance, and [this] depiction of a typical battle is excellent.--Victoria Vogel "VOYA "
The reader is given a thorough description of the action on both sides as the battle progresses. Weaponry, artillery, battle plans, fortifications, uniforms, and much more are described.... There is not much written on military history of the Renaissance, and [this] depiction of a typical battle is excellent. The illustrations and short chapters will appeal to reluctant readers or to those looking for a manageable resource to add to their bibliographies.--Victoria Vogel "VOYA "
