I do not know much about military service so the personal stories from World War II through Iraq and Afghanistan were very interesting. Unfortunately the accounts focused heavily on the military service aspects and hardly at all on their lives as lesbians and gay men. This book took me from knowing nothing to knowing a bare minimum and having a lot of questions.
