Woman Marine: A Memoir Of A Woman who Joined the U.S. Marine Corps in World War II to "Free A Marine To Fight" by Theresa Karas Yianilos is a true account of a girl of twenty-one who joined the Corps in 1943 and helped win a war along with nineteen thousand other courageous young women between the ages of 20 to 35 who had come together. As the battles for the Pacific Islands against Japan raged on for four years, claiming thousands of Marine lives, she realized what it really meant to "free a Marine". This book was placed on the Commandant's list of recommended reading in 1997. It is the only book that has been written about the Women Marines of World War II. It is an important book on Military History that should be in every library and in all Women's Studies programs in colleges throughout our country.

Review:

It is good. The text is fresh and disingenuous. Its freshness is important and should not be tampered with. -- V. H.Krulak, Lt. Gen., USMC, Ret.

Pick a word--true, accurate, humorous, joyful, fun. A unique style using words of songs of the era intermingled... -- Women Marines Association Bulletin

This woman's memoir is more than an account of World War II women Marines. -- Leatherneck, Magazine Of The Marines
