Happy Adoption Day! - Paperback

ISBN: 0316603236

[SR: 989045], Paperback, [EAN: 9780316603232], Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, Book, [PU: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers], Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, Happy Adoption Day! Read or sung, the excitement and love of new adoptive parents rings through these verses, which reassure adopted children that they are wanted, loved, and special. Full-color illustrations. Full description, Trevor Royle's new history tells the whole story of the Crimean War and puts it in its context, drawing on a variety of new sources as well as representing classic accounts. Overall it is a powerful piece of narrative history. The Battle of the Alma, for instance, after which so many London streets and pubs have been named, is described in a vivid chapter, a "victory that owed everything to the resolve and courage of the British infantrymen." Advancing up a heavily defended hill, one young officer later reported "the fire was so hot that you could hardly conceive it possible for anything the size of a rabbit not to be killed." Royle then adds: "Minutes later he was shot in the cheek, losing 23 teeth and part of his tongue." This balance of excitement and terror is well captured throughout the work. (The Irish journalist William Russell reported a different perspective on the battle: "There was a sickening, sour, fetid smell everywhere and the grass was slippy with blood.") Royle gives powerful accounts of the famous military engagements, the Charge of the Light Brigade and Thin Red Line at the Battle of Balaklava, the "ferocious hand-to-hand fighting" of the Battle of Inkerman. But he also places these flashes of military adventure in the larger context. This was a war fought in many places other than the Crimea--Royle's chapter on the fighting in Armenia, for instance, is entitled "the forgotten war", and there were also naval campaigns in the Baltic and Pacific. The British suffered casualties of 19,584 overall, but only one tenth of this number actually died on the battlefield; the rest died of disease. Royle's chapter on Florence Nightingale and her nurses recaptures the horror her contemporaries felt at hearing about the dreadful conditions of the Field Hospitals. Reading these accounts it is amazing that any wounded man survived at all: "Surgeons operated with unsterilised instruments, wounds were dressed with lint from discarded linen and operating tables were encrusted with the blood and detritus from previous patients." The whole book is a vivid and definitive read. --Adam Roberts, 291762, Family, Friends & Social Issues, 291747, Fiction, 69, Children's Books, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 52, Young Adult, 5346594031, Action & Adventure, 5346475031, Art & Music, 280199, Biographies, 5346498031, Comics & Graphic Novels, 5346499031, Computers & Internet, 280219, Education & Reference, 280208, Historical Fiction, 5346569031, History, 280210, Horror, 280211, Literature & Fiction, 280217, Love & Romance, 280218, Mysteries & Thrillers, 5346606031, Personal Health, 280222, Religion & Spirituality, 5346621031, Science & Nature, 280229, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 280244, Social Issues, 280250, Sport & Outdoors, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
