Abstract

This book chapter in the 2011 edited German volume Soldatinnen: Gewalt und Geschlecht im Krieg vom Mittelalter bis heute (Female Soldiers: Violence and Gender in War from the Middle Ages to the Present) discusses the demarcation lines of gender, sexuality and combat in the US Army in World War II, which increasing integrated  black and white women into military service to support the male soldiers. During World War II in total a number of ca. 140,000 women served in the Women's Army Corps (WAC), they amonted to ca. 2 percent of all soldiers. Their participation in the military during the war was organized along the demarcation lines of gender, sexuality and combat. After the war the vast majority of these women were quickly demobilized and forgotten in national memory.
