Learn about Author Central. Broken Drum (White Mane Kids).

Learn about Author Central. Drums of War is a historical kid’s book. It is about a 12 year old boy who enlisted into the military as a Drummer. What I like is that as a kid, I can relate to the story and put it into perspective. What is nice about this is that you can almost see what Charlie sees as we goes through everyday life. It’s a war through a child’s eyes instead of a 90 year old man who is on his last leg.

Drums of War is a historical kid’s book. It is about a 12 year old boy who enlisted into the military as a Drummer. What I like is that as a kid, I can relate to the story and put it into perspective. What is nice about this is that you can almost see what Charlie sees as we goes through everyday life. It’s a war through a child’s eyes instead of a 90 year old man who is on his last leg. Seeing the journey through Charlie’s eyes is one of the most unique trips that you will ever take in a book. Being a boy, he is willing to throw his feelings out on the middle of the table without hesitating. That is something that you don’t get from a man that has gone to war. It starts out with Charlie looking back on how he got to the tent that he was laying in. When he closes his eyes he sees his family and he remembers his grandpa teaching him how to be a drummer boy. Then it goes on to how hard it was to walk from base to base. The gut it takes just to stand behind the front line playing his drum to keep the fighter up to speed to the commands.
When I read this book was the same time that my Dad was gone. My Mom was always upset and worried that something would happen to him. I was in 8th grade the first time I read this book. While I was reading this book I was lost in confused. Now reading it in my senior year I understand what the book is talking about. It was eye opening to almost see what it’s like to serve. I also needed to understand that this was war in the 1800s.
I think that this will be a good book for the young children and defiantly the ones living a military life style. It helps teaches the kids and the adults about the war life in the 1800s without all of the blood and guts that are in some of the other books that are out there.
One thing that I’ll remember for reading this book is when Charlie is talking about being in the fight with the smoke filled air and the sound of the men’s cry that were muffled by the shot of the guns and cannons; The fear that was running through his blood. The greater the will he had to do his part to help out the team through his drum.

I read this to my kids. It follows a 12 yr old kid in the union army, and it actually depicts (what I think) of as real war during this period. The narrator does chores, makes and loses friends, sufferes hardships, toils in the heat and of course fights in battles. There are many little details that show that the writers are either historians or have done their research.
Finally, the subject matter covers the suffering, death and horrors of war without getting into the grisly details. Thus making this story appropriate for younger readers.
