    E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineNick Nardini who played baseball while his best friend Zach Klecko was in the Civilian Conservation Corps They aren't wild about leaving Ohio and going to war especially since Zach has a girl but they sign up since they are promised by the recruiter that they will be together Zach isn't very fast and his feet are almost flat but the two end up as Paramarines in the Second Parachute Battalion After grueling training they think they will get sent to Guadalcanal but they get sent to Vella Lavella to secure the Barakoma Airfield It's already been taken back with the help of New Zealanders but is still a strategic area After that they go to Choiseul Island where they will have to engage the enemy and hopefully take the island and clear off the Japanese This is a difficult task and Nick becomes so sick with dengue fever and jungle rot that he spends some time in the hospital before going back At the end the Battalion comes across a Japanese prisoner of war camp that they liberate Strengths There are a lot of books set in the European theater but few in the Pacific The descriptions of training of being on islands with a few of the enemy hiding and of slogging through dense jungles in the extreme wet are so vivid War is not something that I really enjoy reading about but this was compelling It made me think of South Pacific or Black Sheep Suadron too Weaknesses Since the Vietnam series follows one group of friends I keep thinking that these books will also be connected When I found out that Nick was a baseball player I got very confused Not sure how all of these fit together but they are all brilliant individually anywayWhat I really think I don't know how Lynch does his research for these but it is nothing short of brilliant He balances perfectly the thrill of being in battle with the absolute devastation his characters feel when they kill other men and also describes how the soldiers become used to the killing whether they want to or not Both his World War II and Vietnam series are must have for middle and high school libraries

    The book I have read is called The Liberators This book is written by Chris Lynch who has been publishing books for than 25 years Also the lexile level of this book is 1050 and the reading level is 65 Mainly this book is about A guy named lynch who has always wanted to become a paratrooper in the army He joins the army himself and drags his best friend Zachary Klecko to complete his dream with him As they join the army they are surprised by how hard becoming a paratrooper really isThe Liberators takes place in World War Two The Liberators is mainly involved with war and fights and is very intense and death threating at moments Lynch and his friend Zach are involved in all wars leading to World War Two They are always busy and in life threatening situations They were doubted along the way but all that matters is they are trying to protect and save theirour country The Central idea of the book is showing how dangerous war really is and how protecting our country is a big risk Lynch and Zach want to make a difference and they are doing so by joining the army Aftering reading the Liberators I think is a great book and definitely recommend it It really sets the tone of war including generals and army commanders It shows that the army is very important and a serious job It talks about many wars and war techniues that are used along the way so you can learn as your readingThis book book is nearly around two hundred pages which i think is perfect length for the reading level which is 65 The author keeps the book going and won't bored you Whether there are sneak attacks army training or explosions the book keeps on going with interesting heartstopping and dangerous things I have read The Liberators and this is why i recommend it to you

    The main characters of The Liberators is Nick Nardini and Zachary Kelcko Nick played baseball and Zachary was part of the civilian conservation corps The book was set in world war The author is Chris Lynch who has written some war military books I was looking for a warmilitary books at my library and came across The Liberators The book is about two friends that joined a special team of Marines called the Para marines Before they joined Zachary was worried that they would be separated when they were deployed After many week of training they get on a ship and get deployed in Vella Lavella where they do what ever the higher command tells them toWhile doing whatever task they had to do they also have to look out for Japanese soldiers hiding every where My favorite uote of the book would be he 's waving his Reising M55 submachine gun over his head and all of us carrying the very same weapon groan and laugh at the same time come on Nicky remember summer camp I swear we could have made these things ourselves at Camp Agassis The book slowed down the closer to the ending Close to the ending Zachary and Nick started remembering all they went through and the brave men they lost during the process Showing how when in war you can lose many friends and loved ones My personal opinion of the bookThe book had many action packed parts as suspenseful points too I really liked the book as it did has some historically accurate points like the firearms that Nick and Zachary had Similar books would be All uite by The Western Front and I Survived the Bombing of Pearl Habor and I Survived the Nazi Invasion I would recommend this book to someone who likes historical fiction or warmilitary books

    I've tried some many times to give this a 4 star rating but Goodreads keeps it at a one star rating for some glitchy reasonAs much as he loved playing baseball when the Eastern Shore League suspended operations in 1941 for the duration of the war player Nick Nardini could understand why I guess it just seemed suddenly really dumb to have the fittest guys in America playin' ballgames when the rest of the world was out there killing each other in a war that was without a doubt gonna eventually include the USA Nick convinces his best friend and teammate Zachary Kleko to join the marines with him despite the fact that Kleko has a girlfriend and the promise of a job at a plant in Ypsilanti MI manufacturing B 24 Liberators heavy bombers for when the US enters the war Nick's idea is that they will go through basic training and the war on the buddy systemNick and Zach are first sent to Parris Island SC for seven weeks of basic training and then paramarine training at Camp Lejeune NC where they learn to how to parachute jump within 16 weeks Finally after all those gruelling weeks and weeks of training the two friends and the rest of their 650 troop Second Parachute Battalion set sail for the Pacific on an LST Landing Ship Tank carrying supplies including vehicles and ammunition They arrive at the pacific island of Vella Levella recently won back from the Japanese with the help of New Zealand soldiers but the enemy isn't finished there As the men and supplies are disembarking Nick and Zach get their first taste of real fighting attacked from above by enemy dive bombers who finally drop a 500 pound bomb on the LST Their job on Vella Lavella is to protect the airstrip there strategically important for the Allies the battle was fought in 1943 to give you a sense of timeFrom Vella they are sent to Choiseul Island where they encounter 5000 Japanese soldiers to their 650 troops The mission is to divert enemy attention and men so that the Third Marine Division can land at Bourgainville It's a dangerous mission code named Operation Blissful especially because the Second Parachute Battalion will truly be on their own without any backup Naturally after making their slow wet way through the jungle they again encounter the enemy After that there is a lot fighting in store for Nick and his fellow Marines on different islands Eventually though Nick finds himself in a hospital with dengue fever malaria and early stage jungle rot After six weeks he is reunited with his battalion heading for Okinawa and another brutal battle cut short by the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki ending the war in the Pacific theater Their next job is to enter Japan on a POW recovery mission Lynch brings his WWII series full circle when Nick and Zach find Hank McCallum who recognizes Nick from past ballgames Hank you may remember from Dead in the Water Book 2 was on the USS Yorktown when it took a direct hit and sank at Midway Now with the war over these three baseball players are ready to return to civilian life and the game they all love so much After reading and reviewing all the books in this series there isn't much new I can say about them The Liberators is every bit as well written and researched as the other three books The main characters are all minor league baseball players on teams that make up the Eastern Shore Division but they are all so different from each other that they really stand out as individuals Lynch's writing is sharp and has the kind of snappy way of speaking that you find in many movies made between 1939 and 1945 whether or not they were war movies I've often wondered if real people ever spoke like that His books are powerful and exciting but some of the details he include while realistic will not make many young readers yearn to be part of a war The Liberators is narrated in the first person by Nick following the same format used in all of Lynch's war books including his Vietnam series so the reader gets first hand experience of the action As much as I dislike looking at books through a gender lens I really think that this World War II series and the Vietnam series will appeal to boys than most girls especially since there are very few females in them and none with a major role I don't think Lynch is a chauvinist I think that the male perspective is simply what he knows best If you are looking for good realistic historical fiction about WWII this is a series that is sure to appeal to youThis book is recommended for readers 11This was an EARC received from NetGalleyThis review was originally posted on The Children's War

    I really enjoyed this book This showed the view of a marine paratrooperNick in the beginning The main character was a baseball star who enlists in the marines with his best friendZach It also shows his many thrilling adventures The spoiler is that a main character in the navy from a previous book hears his brother in the army air corps was KIA killed in action and in the end of this book Nick meets that brother who was KIA and now we know he is alive
