I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

My students love Eric Z's books. They are middle school students who love to learn about many of the things Eric writes about. They just don't want to read 300 pages to get the information. This book gives readers a look at the Navy Seal's job. The books take you from the planning of a mission to it's completion. It has actual pictures which makes it even more appealing.

This book has everything you would want to know about the Blue Angels. I had no idea there were so many flying formations. More importantly, I had no idea what they were called or how they performed them. This is a very interesting book full of other links for more information. I am proud to put this book on my classroom shelves.

I had always heard how grueling the training to become a Navy seal was. I really had no idea how truly tough it is until I read this book. This is a small book packed with a tone of information about what it takes to become a Navy seal. I now understand why so many who try the program wash out. It is not for the faint of heart. I have a new respect for these people we call Navy seals.

If you have ever had a desire to be an Air Force Pilot, then this is the book for you. It is full of wonderful information as well as great pictures. The author makes it clear you must meet certain requirements to be accepted as a pilot. As a teacher I really liked the fact he made it clear how important getting an education is. I never knew how much was involved in becoming a pilot of any type. I also had no idea there were so many types of Air Force aircraft. This is sad because my brother retired from the Air Force. He was one who loaded cargo planes. There is information on the types of guns and missiles each carry, and how fast they can go. The book tells you what each type of aircraft is used for. This is a book I would be proud to give to kids. If it ever comes out in physical format it will be a welcome addition to my nonfiction shelf in my classroom. The author did a phenomenal job of gathering all of the information and putting it in a format that will entice anyone.… (more)
