Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this clearly written, well-organized book, Nathan traces the gains women in the military have made from the Revolutionary War to the present day, including the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Glimpses of each time period are skillfully woven into the text, providing a solid historical overview. Each major war is discussed from the perspective of the female participants of that era, and quotes from individuals, insets with mini biographies, and an abundance of period photographs bring the narrative to life. The slow and difficult transition from women acting as helpers on the battlefield to fighting as soldiers alongside their male counterparts is described in detail. A discussion of sexual harassment and racial discrimination sheds light on some of the problems women have faced. Readers will find this book valuable for research and interesting for browsing.

Synopsis:

From the Revolutionary War to the Persian Gulf War, this work commemorates the courageous American women who have proudly served their country, tracing their long struggle as full members of the armed forces. Illustrations.
