Booklist's Spotlight on Series Nonfiction, April 2017

"Black Rabbit's All-American Fighting Forces series presents concise, high/low histories of minority-based U.S. fighting forces (code talkers, Buffalo Soldiers, the Go for Broke regiment, etc.) ..."

Booklist, December 2016

"The All-American Fighting Forces series introduces the subject of prejudice in the armed forces by focusing on minority groups who faced great obstacles in order to fight for their country. In American Indian Code Talkers, readers learn that Native Americans aided the U.S. in both WWI and WWII ... Go for Broke Regiment spotlights the Japanese American soldiers of WWII, most of whom were recruited from internment camps. The book notes both the regiment's success and how few of these soldiers had homes to return to at the end of the war. Harlem Hellfighters explains how this decorated African American unit fought bravely during WWI, even though its soldiers faced extreme prejudice at home. Women Airforce Service Pilots are the subject of WASPs, which spotlights how these women took on difficult tasks—like helping to train male pilots and flying broken planes in for repair—but were not permitted to fight in WWII themselves ... the graphics will draw reluctant readers with historical photographs, colorful time lines, and startling statistics. Use these titles to spark kids' interest before moving them on to more comprehensive titles."
