Lafayette for Young Americans
by Rupert Holland
The book follows the fascinating career of the Marquis de Lafayette from his youth in France, through the years of his heroic service to Washington during the Revolutionary Wars, to his ill-fated service the Revolutionary cause in France. The story of Lafayette's life provides a fascinating juxtaposition between the successful and laudatory American revolution, and the far more blood-thirsty French revolution. The author does an excellent job of presenting complicated political events in terms comprehensible to middle school ages students.
