Summary
"Of all the nation's wars, perhaps none was more important for the evolution of women's roles in American society than World War II. At no other time in history had the United States been faced with such a clear choice in tis wartime strategy: either draw women closer to the mainstream of military and industrial life or lose the war for the sake of outmoded attitudes and beliefs. 'American Women and World War II' tells the story of the whole body of American Women who answered their country's call, both on the home front and on the front lines"--Inside cover
