GladiatorBook - 2009
Less typical history than thrilling survey of what it took to be a gladiator in ancient Rome, this series profiles personalities, wars, battle tactics, and weaponry from ancient times and achieves the cool factor that will capture the imagination of students and create obsessive interest among readers. With a good combination of multiple-level text, illustration, photography, and fact boxes and timelines, this is a highly recommended series for many reluctant readers.
