Xtreme Military Aircraft Set 2 – School Library Journal
Young military enthusiasts will be drawn to this attractive set. Each chapter includes large, high-quality color photos that fill the page or the entire spread. The brief, but informative, text is placed over the photos. Print is in black or white, depending on the color of the background. The basic content covers the featured machine’s manufacturer, use, dimensions, crew size, history, and weaponry. Small red text boxes containing an “Xtreme fact” (e.g., “AC-130 gunships destroyed more than 10,000 enemy trucks during the Vietnam War”) are scatted throughout every volume. A brief caption accompanies most images. This set flies high above its competitors in this genre. . . .
