This book is a non-fiction account of various women war correspondents prior to, during, and immediately following World War 2. There experiences were amazing and inspiring. They struggled to fight their way into jobs that were normally filled by men only. I learned that it was no easy task to get an assignment to cover any part of the war because of their gender. I also learned a great deal about the time period and both the European and Pacific fronts of the war. The fact that the author was able to interview these women about their experience is absolutely priceless. The things these courageous women saw and the stories they were able to write about and photograph must have been etched into their memories for the rest of their lives. In many cases they risked their lives to get the story to the folks back home.
I was sad to see the book end and would love to know more about each woman and what followed after the war because their lives were so altered.
As always, Tavia Gilbert delivers a fabulous performancs as narrator.
