"The never-before-told 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 remarkable 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."--Cloth Book jacket
