Inhaltsangabe: During the Vietnam War, helicopters proved their worth to the US military. With brave crews aboard, they hovered low in the skies to rescue pilots and soldiers who were frighteningly close to enemy forces. How fascinating to think that the first helicopters couldn't even stay upright! In this book, readers will discover what it was like for the inventors of the helicopter, while also learning how this huge machine became the military necessity it is today. Exciting content, along with full-color photographs of daring rescues and high-tech equipment, will inspire readers to look to the skies. Detailed sidebars and fact boxes will keep readers engaged from cover to cover.
From School Library Journal: Gr 3-5-These volumes offer glimpses of the past, present, and future of various types of military vehicles. Some are written as general overviews; others focus on particular experimental or production models as examples. Though the connected narratives create more context for their chosen subjects than corresponding volumes in other, more browser-oriented series, the generalities here are not leavened with enough specific facts and statistics to keep confirmed fans interested. Overall, the reproductions and color and archival black-and-white photos are bland and not sharply reproduced. α(c) Copyright 2011.
