    2. I really enjoyed reading Behind Enemy Lines by Bill Doyle. The book was extremely interesting and at points pretty inspiring. All of the stories, names, dates and locations were real. It was filled with 8 action-packed short stories detailing the courage and selflessness of soldiers, spies, and sometimes random civilians from around the world. I learned about many people who had such an overwhelming amount of patriotism that they risked their lives in the name of freedom. I really enjoyed the pr [...]

    3. "Behind Enemy Lines" includes eight true stories about men and women who go on daring missions and escapes to help our country. In one story there is a riot going on during the Civil War. Emma Edmonds is disguised as a soldier, Frank Tomson. She wanted to fight for her home, but since she was a woman she wasn't allowed to, so she disguised herself as a man. She became a spy for the Union and her first mission was to find out how many guns the Confederates had. She disguised herself as a slave an [...]

    7. I enjoyed this book because it told me all the stories are based true. I thought this was interesting because these people risked their lives to save us. This book is mostly about true stories telling us that these important people risked their lives to save ours. In this book it shows amazing courage and determination to help their own side so that they could end the wars that are taking place. My favorite part from this book was when Emma dressed up as a boy just so she could help her side win [...]

    8. I'm writing this review to let you know what I thought of this book. My opinion on this book is that this is a good book. It really pulls you into it and it tells you about what happens in the war and how it all started. If you wanted to learn more about this war this would be the book to read, because this book really goes into detail about it. So I would recommend it to anybody that likes to read about history and wants to learn more about this war. It explains also how the men fought for us a [...]

    10. This book was very interesting in its layout. It had a table of contents like any other book, but it listed the stories in chronological order and gave the page number they could be found on. Each story was different, ranging from land operations, to underwater expeditions, to stories of survival, and much more. Each person in the stories displayed bravery second to none. The people also didn't do it for the glory, or the reward, but for serving their country, regardless of their gender, age, or [...]

    11. This book was better than I thought. It is about spies and important people that changed how the war was fought. The book starts out with the First American Spy this happened in the revolutionary war: 1776. Next is Crossing the Line, Civil War: 1862. After that it is flight of the wing walker WW2 1941. The next one is Major League Espionage WW2 1943. After that it is Escape from France WW2 1944. Following that we have Out of the Jungle Vietnam war: 1966. The next is Dark Waters of Desert Storm, [...]

    12. The war behind enemy lines. Well that is the book Behind Enemy Lines by Bill Doyle. The protagonist in this story is John on the U.S fighting the war. The antagonist Jim is on the Japanese side. The theme is, even though you don’t want to do it, you do it. The conflict is that he got shot and he cannot heal from the shot. The setting is in Japan. The best part in the story is the middle, when the war is going on, because I like reading about war and fighting and guns. John is 18 years old, an [...]

    13. I thought that this book takes you to the life that a soldier lives. The magnificent stories that it tells are mind blowing. All the obstacles these veterans had to overcome were truly amazing. Hearing about war stories from the source is much more real then hearing stories from people that weren't actually in war. I would recommend this book to teenagers and tell tell them that if they really like to be told the stories of real life home front then this is the book for them. Everybody should be [...]

    15. While I prefer to mix my selection of stories to read, I simply cannot deny a good “based on a true story” book, which is why this book appealed to me. The book consisted of several stories, including those of the American Revolution, the Civil War, World War II, and more present-day operations against terrorism in Iraq. These are stories of spies, double-agents, assassins, and other undercover workers in the war process. My favorite quote was “After all, she was a woman disguised as a man [...]

    16. Behind Enemy Lines was an inspiring book filled with true stories of brave Americans who demonstrated strong acts of courage and patriotism. This book is filled with eight real life stories about spies and undercover workers in war from significant wars in our history including the American Revolution, the Civil War, WWII and the War in Iraq. These stories allow the reader to connect to what it is like to be in war time and the risks that these people took for freedom. The information presented [...]

    17. These stories highlight deeds of derring-d0 from wars throughout our history, from Nathan Hale in the American Revolution to Green Berets in the Iraq War. One of my favorites is the story of Emma Edmonds, who pretended to be Private Frank Thompson in the Civil War. Not only did she pull of her disguise as a man in the Union army, but she also created multiple other disguises in her work as a Union spy. I had also never hear of Moe Berg, a Major League Baseball player, who used his talent for lea [...]

    19. This book is about brave men and women who go behind enemy lines to spy and gain crucial information about the enemy to help their side win. It talks about the troubles and hardships they go through or maybe their cruel end, to risk their life to conduct espionage.I picked up this book from scholastic a few years and finally got to read this book. I finished this book because of all the in-depth detail of every exact moment of their mission. Their lives just fascinate me. I would recommend this [...]

    21. Behind Enemy Lines is a non-fiction book which has compiled many true stories of Spies and how dangerous it can be for them. Many of these stories are entertaining, even though some don't end well for the spy. I found myself immersed in this book, not wanting to put it down even for a second. The dates contained within the book go back more than 200 years. One person even is a spy for the great George Washington, fighting against the British in the Revolutionary War to gather intelligence, and d [...]

    22. Full Title: _Behind Enemy Lines: Under Fire in the Middle East_This is a children's book, marked at 2.7 grade level. My daughter thought it would be interesting to me, so she bought it for me at her school's book fair.Although an easy read for an adult, it was filled with inspiring stories from veterans of our wars in the Middle east. My only concern was that the stories have been edited in the sense of a TV-movie makeover under the premise of "better storytelling." I can't argue with the result [...]

    23. This was a book with different stories of true courage from American spies and soldiers around the world. The stores were amazing, I must say. My favorite one [[warning: spoiler alert!]] was the spy in the civil war. At the time girls weren't allowed in the army so she diguised herself as a boy. To spy on what the confederate army was doing she would disguise herslelf as different people many times to get in. She was a while lady but one time she dressed as a African American slave to get in. I [...]

    24. It is multiply story's of war and people in them and how they did it or accomplished it. There are story's on spying, and under cover and getting people out of camps and assassinating people.The reason I rated it the way I did is because it tells a little about history and how things were done. In some of the book they go back in time to about the 1760 when there were red coats and muskets. I also liked this book because it was what I picked to read and I thought it was a good book. There also o [...]

    25. The book behind enemy lines is a very good book about war heroes. The book has war heroes from throughout history. Some of the wars included are the revolutionary world war 2 gulf war Vietnam war and the Iraq war. This book was very informative and helped me learn more about the battles or how the war was. The book didn't go into to much detail so younger kids could definitely read it and even adults would like it. It's the right book for everyone.

    26. Caleb bought this from the school book fair when he was probably in first grade. After my quick perusal, it was definitely too advanced for him, so I kept it in my room until he was a bit older. And until I had read it. He's definitely old enough now, although I feel concern about his interest in war stories. But these were definitely interesting -- especially the two stories about women who worked behind enemy lines!

    27. This book was really intersting, and I learned a lot from it. I think the people from this book are amazing for what they did. At some points it was sad, but in the end these people are truely amazing. Soliders do things when they are in battle that we are unaware of. Bill Doyle does a great job making it so we know who these people are.

The second story is about a master of disguise going across enemy lines. The third story is about a man who tries to fly a long way to foil a nazi plan during World War II 1962. Read this book to hear the rest of the stories.

    29. Ev and I have been reading this as his bedtime book for awhile. Nonfiction just feels odd to me for bedtime confort. Reading about spies, wars, IEDs, and al-Queada before saying goodnight to my little boy was disconcerting at times. Good info? Absolutely! Did Evan like it? You bet! I suppose that's what counts.

    30. This book is a combination of war stories that date back all the way to WW2, and is as recent as the Iraq war. It has many brave soldiers and just normal people doing amazing things. These people are men and women doing things such as saving pilots or spying on an enemy base. This book is a book for people of all ages.
