Paige Smith's 12 Immigrants Who Made The American Military Great is an informative and educational book that speaks about the immigrants whose military contributions have played a key role in making the USA great. Let us read about Casimir Pulaski, the heroic freedom fighter from Poland; John Ericsson, the Swedish-American inventor and engineer; Sarah Emma Edmonds, the Canadian who disguised herself as a man and worked as a nurse and a spy; Philip Bazaar, the Chilean-American seaman, Igor Sikorsky, the Russian-American inventor and aviation engineer; and many more, and learn how they contributed to the American military.

The book is interesting and is a good one to read for information about the immigrants who made memorable contributions to the American military. The subject is relevant today and it is interesting to note how these 12 immigrants are from diverse backgrounds yet left an indelible mark on the American military with their skills. The author gives a brief biography and speaks about their notable contributions. This is a good book to have in public libraries and school libraries as it can be used for reference. Apart from the12 immigrants mentioned, there are many others who have fought for America and served in the military. The military also paved the path to US citizenship for many immigrants. This entire series celebrates the immigrants who have made contributions to every part of American history.
