Publishers Description
Stephen E. Ambrose, one of the finest historians of our time, has written an extraordinary chronicle of World War II for young readers. From Japanese warplanes soaring over Pearl Harbor, dropping devastation from the sky, to the against-all-odds Allied victory at Midway, to the Battle of the Bulge during one of the coldest winters in Europe's modern history, to the tormenting decision to bomb Nagasaki and Hiroshima with atomic weapons, "The Good Fight" brings the most horrific -- and most heroic -- war in history to a new generation in a way that's never been done before.
In addition to Ambrose's accounts of major events during the war, personal anecdotes from the soldiers who were fighting on the battlefields, manning the planes, commanding the ships -- stories of human triumph and tragedy -- bring the war vividly to life.
Highlighting Ambrose's narrative are spectacular color and black-and-white photos, and key campaign and battlefield maps. Stephen E. Ambrose's singular ability to take complex and multifaceted information and get right to its essence makes "The Good Fight" the book on World War II for kids.

Praise to Stephen E. Ambrose  Dec 17, 2006
Are you looking for a short history book but has loads of information? If you're interested in WWII I would suggest the book: THE GOOD FIGHT-How WWII was won by: Stephen Ambrose. It may look like a boring history book on the outside but the info is numerous! It tells you of the origins of WWII in Europe and in Asia and tells you the most confidential secrets of WWII - like the Atomic bomb. Britain's secret service to locate enemy positions. And, did you know Rosenthal's picture of the flag raising on Mt Suribachi was the 2nd one? The first one was too small to be seen on the beach. The flag raisers are: Ira Hayes, Franklin Sousely, John Bradley, Harlon Block, Mike Strank and Rene Gagnon. There are many other facts you would want to know too. Whenever I need a short book, I always have The Good fight around for me to read. I recommend this book to all Ages (even my 8 year old sister reads it a lot). Another praise to the famous Stephen Ambrose! I give this Book 5 stars.
The good fight - how world war ii was won  Feb 22, 2006
Purchased as a gift - person likes the works and is quite a history buff.
Be careful, book full of errors  Mar 27, 2005
This book has nice pictures but book makes some major errors. I would not recommend it to any youth for this reason. For example, there is a photo on page 41 with a caption saying that the men in the photo are marines in Tarawa. First off, they are not marines - they are army men (you can tell by the uniform) & secondly, the photo was taken in Makin which is part of the same atol as Tarawa but is technically not Tarawa. Ok, fine... I can normally let something like that slip by. But what is worse is when you turn to the map on page 9, it indicates the Pearl Harbor attack as Dec. 7, 1943. I had to close the book and toss it into the nearest wastebasket after reading this. If editors were sleepy enough to let this slip by, it seriously brings to question the veracity of what is said in other points of the book. I am not talking about them getting the date wrong in some obscure minor battle, but they got the date wrong with PEARL HARBOR - come on now!
The Best Book For Research  Feb 4, 2003
I was writing a research paper on world war two, and was required to have 6 sources, but only needed one. No Joke...GReat info packed book!
A very good World War II book for children  Sep 26, 2002
This thin (96 pages), but large, book is a colorful look at the United States' participation in World War II. Each section is given two pages; one containing a large (and often color!) picture or map, while the other is a combination of text, one or two pictures and a "Quick Facts" sidebar. While not in-depth, this attractive book will give the younger reader and a very good overview of the War. Plus, the excellent use of color will help the younger reader to connect with the book.

Overall, I thought that this was a very good World War II book for children, and I highly recommend it.
