    "Great book to get younger kids interested in our history. The writing was simple and easy to understand for my nephew. He struggles a bit to stay interested in school, so this was perfect for me to give to him. I recommend it for kids who are of short attention span."

    "The Fighting Ground is really a great book but it is for children instead of young adults. Having said that, your kids will enjoy the whole book even the last sad ending part. It is time for the kids to learn the revolution in a truthful way."
