ALA Booklist
By hooking major military conflicts to actual buildings readers can visit and experience, the War Memorials series stretches its potentially depressing subject matter into something hands-on and even, on occasion, inspiring. Brief explanations for the cause of each war quickly lead to the end of said conflict and the subsequent urge of Americans to memorialize their soldiers. World War I Memorial details the various worldwide memorials that proliferated in the wake of the Great War, finally settling on the construction and symbolism of Kansas City's massive Liberty Memorial and its most celebrated details (the Flame of Inspiration, the sphinxes, and the North Frieze). All the titles in the series boast solid back matter and a fine layout featuring a good mix of period pictures and maps.
