This title brings together twenty-five writings by women who share their rich and varied World War II experiences, from serving in the military to working on the home front to preparing for the postwar world. By providing evidence of their active and resourceful roles in the war effort as workers, wives, and mothers, these women offer eloquent testimony that World War II was indeed everybody's war.

Litoff and Smith combine pieces by well-known writers, such as Margaret Culkin Banning and Nancy Wilson Ross, with important-but largely forgotten-personal accounts by ordinary women living in extraordinary times. This volume is divided into the six sections listed below:

  • Preparing for War

  • In the Military

  • At 'Far-Flung' Fronts

  • On the Home Front

  • War Jobs

  • Preparing for the Postwar World

  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

    About the Author:

    Judy Barrett Litoff is professor of history at Bryant College. David C. Smith is Bird and Bird Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Maine.

    Review:

    American Women in a World at War provides abundant materials (many of which have been out of print) on gender, class and race during World War II. (Feminist Bookstore News)

    Well balanced by roles, race, and region, this collection provides fascinating insight into what it meant to be an American woman during World War II. (D'Ann Campbell, Austin Peay State University)

    With the publication of American Women in a World at War, we know that women of all races and classes fought on both the home front and the battlefront. An invaluable collection of contemporary accounts by American women who fought the war. (William M. Tuttle Jr., author of Race Riot: Chicago in the Red Summer of 1919 and Daddy's Gone to War The Second World War in the Lives of America's Children)

    The women here almost leap from the pages and pull the reader into their stories. Thanks to Litoff and SMith for retrieving this crucial segment of women's history. (Glenda Riley)

    An interesting book, pioneering in many ways, and a definite contribution to the history of U.S. participation in World War II, its stories gathered into a bouquet of historical documentation. (International Social Science Review)
