A Few Good Women: America's Military Women from World War I to the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The never-before-told story of the U.S. womens military corps: the women who fought for the right to defend their country by serving in our armed forces with full military rank and benefitsa fight that continues today for American military women who want to serve in combat support positions and in frontline combat units.

Using interviews, correspondence, and diaries, as well as archival material, Evelyn M. Monahan and Rosemary Neidel-Greenlee tell the remarkable story of Americas “few good women” who today make up more than 15 percent of the U.S. armed forces and who serve alongside men in almost every capacity. Here are the stories of the battles these women fought to march beside their brothers; their tales of courage and fortitude; of the indignities theyve endured; the injustices theyve overcome; of the blood theyve shed; the comrades theyve lost; and the challenges they still face in the twenty-first century.

U.S. military women have lived, and continue to live, the history that has helped to make and keep America what it is. Now their stories have been brought together in a riveting firsthand narrative, as inspiring as it is illuminating.

From the Hardcover edition.
