Dangerous Jobs: Special Forces Operator
by Chris Bowman
Special Forces Operator is one in the series of Dangerous Jobs. This book is perfect for a reluctant reader or an ELL student. The book is loaded with pictures of the Special Forces Operators in all aspects of their job. There is also a glossary, an index and a list for further reading.
Some interesting facts that I learned about this division of the Armed Forces is that all individuals who enter the Special Forces must learn another language, and that they typically don't wear a uniform, even while performing their duties.
Although this book screams "boys", I think that girls would learn something from it as well. With women in the Marines competing for jobs that have typically been held by men, this is a timely book that will appeal to a broad range of middle school students.
