Abstract

This is the story of the U.S. women's military corps: the women who fought for the right to defend their country by serving in our armed forces with full military rank and benefits, a fight that continues today for American military women who want to serve in combat support positions and in frontline combat units. Using interviews, correspondence, and diaries, as well as archival material, the authors tell the story of America's 'few good women' who today make up more than 15 percent of the U.S. armed forces and who serve alongside men in almost every capacity. Here are the stories of the battles these women fought to march beside their brothers; their tales of courage and fortitude; of the indignities they have overcome; of the blood they have shed; the comrades they have lost; and the challenges they still face in the twenty-first century.
