A little boring at times, but overall, a fascinating look at the role(s) of women during WWII. I learned a lot. My favorite chapters related to the roles of African-American Women, Japanese Americans, the nurses who volunteered for service as opposed to the men who were drafted and the women who were in the OSS (a precursor to the CIA) and OWI. Do you know what famous woman was a valued member of the OSS? Check out this book to find the answer!

Note: This was our Janaury 2011 book discussion book.
