“Women Remember the War” is a fascinating collection of oral histories of 25 Wisconsin women who lived through World War II. It consists of edited versions of interviews done in the early 1990s.

The chapters are organized by the women’s experience with some women appearing in multiple sections. The factory worker, the single employed, the mothers, those who wore uniforms and they who waited for their men to return all have their tales to tell.

This is not polished writing, but neither is it disorg

A great collection of recollections from various Wisconsin women and what their life was like during the war. I like how many different viewpoints/backgrounds were covered. I wish it had been a bit more polished, rather than just a Q&A, but it was still fascinating.
