About this title


WASPs, WACs, WAVEs, Marines, Army and Navy nurses, cooks, clerks, OSS intelligence gatherers, and other service women--forty in all--offer intimate, first-hand accounts of their rigorous experiences overseas and the mistreatment they sometimes faced.

From Publishers Weekly:

Thousands of American women joined military and civilian agencies to serve their country during WWII. Some worked under dangerous conditions, but most held routine jobs such as office worker and truck driver. Gruhzit-Hoyt (Censorship in America) presents the stories of women who saw duty with the Army Nurse Corps, Women's Army Corps, Navy WAVES, Marine Corps Women's Reserves, Coast Guard SPARS, etc. Among them are Reba Whittle, the only American nurse captured and imprisoned by the Germans during the war; Alice Nielstockel, who ran a Red Cross club-mobile that followed U.S. troops as they fought their way across Europe; and Charity Adams, one of the first black women accepted for the first officer-candidate class at the first WAC training center (at Fort Des Moines, Iowa). These profiles don't go deep but reveal the immensely supportive roles women played in the war.
