    One thought on “A Few Good Women: America's Military Women from World War I to the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan”

    1. For WW II enthusiasts, this book gives us a good idea of the rest of the story The authors are to be commended for their extensive research and the many first person interviews You will learn things you have never heard before no matter how much you have read about WW II.

    2. As a former USAR member, I did find some of the information interesting I share many of the authors sentiments about the military as it is today.

    3. American women have served in the military, officially and unofficially, probably from colonial times This book covers their service in the 20th and 21st centuries It was an extremely difficult fight to get a patriarchal government s recognition that women served in combat zones undergoing the same dangers and then some because they faced danger from men supposed to be on their side as American servicemen In World War II Army and Navy nurses were captured by Japanese and held as POWs Nurses hit [...]

    4. This book is a real eye opener about sexism in the military A few too many statistics but the story itself is enlightning What our nurses and women went through with no credit whatsoever will anger you.

    5. I really enjoyed this book as a great tool for knowledge of women in the US armed forces It was easy and interesting to read There are a couple criticisms I have, however the later wars are kinda skimped on, there is too little discussion of women in the later wars, and someone obviously lost interest and stopped proofing by the last part of the text Though I largely agree with what the authors have to say at the end, I feel it was preachy and sloppy I want to know about how women are integral [...]

    6. I started reading this book because during the Vietnam war several of my nursing school friends joined the army and because I had the opportunity to work at several VA Hospitals I also have an interest in how women move forward in professions that normally are male dominated I was disappointed in this book because, although it is factually accurate, it is such dull reading that it ought to be listed as a reference book rather than a book one would want to read from cover to cover The stories of [...]

    7. The problems begin with the lack of a table of contents, symbolic of the overall lack of structure and organization although the authors are not professional historians, the editor should have addressed this larger coherence issue The reader is left to meander through the book on their own While it has potential mainly the interviews and the story of military women is one that needs to be told, this book is exceedingly frustrating to use and lacks historical chronology and context.

    8. The amount of history is amazing To think of what women did only 60 years ago and the crap we re still having to deal with in 2012, I am so very great full for those first women broke down the barriers so we could have success today On the flip side the book isn t organized too well and the chapters should have had the dates or at least have been separated by war period time frames.
