Clear prose and coherent and thoughtful story lines written from a feminist perspective describe women's contribution to war efforts and explain how military service became one of the foundations of the modern women's movement. . . .Well-chosen period photos of the women who served are a plus, as are the sidebars and maps. These topics are often overlooked for this audience, especially those of Soviet Night Witches. A first purchase for middle school libraries.-- "School Library Journal"
