Veterans Day

Veterans Day is tomorrow, so in honor of the day, I wanted to share with you some remarkable books about wartime history.

Remember D-Day is a harrowing account of the Allied invasion of France. For a lengthier review, check out this post.

Angela Johnson's Wind Flyers is a great introduction to the Tuskegee Airmen.

Yankee Doodle Gals is an inspiring look at women air pilots of World War II. For a lengthier review, check out this post.

For older children, Pat McKissack's Red-Tail Angels is packed with amazing details about the airmen.

Finally, Their Names to Live is a fine introduction to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

History Channel's website has a great website on Veterans Day.

Here is a multimedia history of World War I.

Learn about the World War II memorial in DC.

PBS's American Experience: Vietnam War is a good site about the Vietnam War.

The Korean War Memorial is also in DC.
