Editorial Reviews


"A fascinating account of black women in the armed forces in World War II. We are indebted to Brenda Moore for recording this story while these women are still with us. Moore gives powerful new insights for African American studies, gender studies, and military history."-Charles Moskos, Professor of Sociology, Northwestern University

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mark Sprecher on July 1, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I've just finished this first volume in five volume series and look forward to continuing with the other four. I've enjoyed R.K. Narayan's one volume retelling of the story, and highly recommend that for anyone who just wants to take in the basic tropes and story of the Ramayana. But I really got into the slower pace of this first volume, the repetitions, the officious language. They give the work a certain majesty that is well suited to the other-worldliness (macro-worldliness?) of its nature. I suppose taking up these five volumes isn't exactly a casual undertaking, but the material is engrossing and well worth the time. And I am grateful to have the Sanskrit facing pages to refer to -- I do not know Sanskrit, just some Hindi, but I love being able to sporadically read some of the romanized Sanskrit aloud to get a sense of the original language and rhythm, it just adds to the overall experience.
