Invasion by Walter Dean Myers - - ESSENTIAL

Myers, Walter Dean Invasion, 224 pgs. Scholastic Press; 2013. $17.99. Language: R (86 Swears 17 Fs); Mature Content: PG13; Violence: PG13.  

Woody is part of the 29th Infantry Division which invaded France against the Germans on D-Day suffering heavy casualties.  This is the story of the Invasion and the weeks following D-Day.  

Walter Dean Myers gives us another war story; this time, WWII. Billed as a prequel to Fallen Angels and Sunrise over Fallujah, Myers shows the horrors of war without being too graphic and sends the message that war is not the answer to the world’s problems.  Although the swear count is high, I would certainly recommend this on a Middle School level.
