This is the first book of its kind - examining the crucial role these women played in World War II. Here are the intimate accounts of twenty-eight servicewomen, many of whom risked their lives during the war. These and others were the pioneers of what decades later would become the Women's Revolution. Olga Gruhzit-Hoyt contacted hundreds of organizations, veterans groups, and individual women who told their stories in interviews, letters, and accounts written especially for this important book. These women came from farms, universities, small-town America, and big cities.
