Very intriguing - and unparalleled Nov. 4 2005
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Unique for both children and adults is Alpha Bravo Charlie: The Military Alphabet, a picture book providing An A-Z military alphabet including military terms and insights. Kids in grades 6-10 receive a survey of the International Communications Alphabet, used by the US military and throughout civil aviation, and will receive signal flags the navy created to give each letter a color-coded shape. Very intriguing - and unparalleled.

My 5 year old son loves jets right now and this book is perfect to teach him the military alphabet. The illustrations are good and it's a good price.

Appeals to a wide age range! Dec 5 2012
By Abigail Pogvara - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My 20-month-old son has been reading this with his father and me for about 6 months now, and it's one of his favorites. He usually asks us to read it at least once a day. It is a little long for him, so sometimes he'll get distracted by another toy half-way through, but he'll always come back to finish it.

There are lots of interesting things going on in the illustrations, which cover military history from the second world war up to the present. It's very neat to see how there is still something that interests my son, as his fascination shifts from dogs (shrieking "Puppy!" every time we got to K is for Kilo--detailing a K-9 unit) to Airplanes (Z is for Zulu--Zoom! as a jet takes off and my son makes zooming motions.) This book is a good choice for active boys as well as those who will sit still for longer periods.

I also really enjoyed that there is a more in-depth explanation of what each illustration depicts detailed in the back of the book. So, while on the page for L is for Lima the text reads "Marines, known as Leathernecks, make a beachhead landing," at the back of the book, you get more information telling you that the beachhead landing shown is from the Allied invasion of Normandy on D-Day. This makes the book interesting for me as a parent, and also adds to its longevity as a part of my son's library.

Golf, Oscar, Oscar, Delta Nov. 3 2008
By Delaney - Published on
Format: Hardcover
(aka Good)

We still enjoy this book even though my son is beyond learning the alphabet. You see the letter of the alphabet, the military alphabet word that corresponds and a picture that represents the scene. All the branches of the service are represented.

At the end of the book you get a little education in the Military Alphabet and some info on the use of naval flags to communicate. Its an informative and fun book.

We like to send letters to Grandpa signed with our military alphabet names.
Appeals to little kids and big kids March 13 2014
By M. Heiss - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book will teach kids that different types of alphabets are in use in the military. There are signal flags and the military alphabet: alpha, bravo, charlie, delta.

There are good illustrations for every letter.

Please note: the page for Dd Delta shows a naval destroyer, and there is a detail wrong. The missile bay is much too small. It should nearly be the width of the destroyer. The rest of the illustrations seem very accurate.

I'm a kid. It's important to get the illustrations right so that veterans don't complain or feel dishonored.
