Booklist Review

Gr. 4^-6. Books in the On Duty series, which are written by individuals who have served in the military, describe in detail the glamorous and not-so-glamorous aspects of life in the army, navy, air force, and marines. Each volume is devoted to a specific program, such as army basic training, and takes readers through the routines and demands in concise, chapter book fashion. Submarine includes a look at exercising and sleeping on the ship; Basic Training lends insight into weapons and fitness training programs; Demolition Expert includes some history along with explanations of demolition work. Each volume has many full-color photographs, a glossary, and a few suggestions for further reading. A useful series for younger or reluctant readers curious about the military. --Heather Hepler
