Grade 5-7-By highlighting the role of the photojournalist, this hi/lo entry offers a unique look at military and photographic history. Beginning with artists who painted scenes of war during the Renaissance, White shows how the illustrator's role has evolved from one of an artist glorifying war to that of a photographer capturing the reality of combat. Actual photographs and paintings in black and white and in color add to a greater understanding of photojournalism. Glossaries appear at the bottom of most pages. With its large-print text and open format, this is an appealing choice to spark an awareness of history or photography, particularly for reluctant readers. Pair it with Taylor Morrison's Civil War Artist (Houghton, 1998) for an interesting introduction to history.
