Over the Top: The Story of a Soldier

Reviewed by:

“Yesterday’s Voices Series” give older hi-lo readers manageable, yet highly sophisticated, thought- provoking historical fiction. Each story includes the factual background to the historical event or theme, incorporating original photographs and drawings, and offering discussion questions and activities. Other titles include “Runaway: The Story of a Slave,” “Tail Gunner: The Story of a Bombing Raid,” “Gladiator: the Story of a Fighter,” and “Holocaust: The Story of a Survivor.” In “Over the Top: The Story of a Soldier,” Jack, a young soldier, faces the danger and terror of trench warfare in World War I, writing home but never revealing to his family the horrors he faced as he and his friends went over the top of the trenches and ran towards enemy guns.
