A noteworthy review of Ancient Warriors from School Library Connection on October 1, 2015
Each book in this series details the history of an historical warrior group. Chapters address origins, weaponry, battle tactics, and major battles. All books include captioned illustrations along with a timeline. While the main narrative emphasizes the history of leaders and their warriors, frequent sidebars ask readers to consider the perspectives of others such as women and conquered people. Brief sentences and emphasis on key vocabulary facilitate comprehension. The books could benefit from the inclusion of modern maps to give readers a frame of reference. The authors’ sources are not listed, though each title notes a consulting expert to add credibility. This series conveys high-interest information, making it a worthwhile addition. Bibliography.
