"It is remarkable that this essential history waited so long to be written. It must have been waiting for Nancy Caldwell Sorel and her incredible research and exquisite style. The notes themselves are an invaluable guide to the work of these exceptional women."
"These women must not be forgotten, their stories must be told NOW. [A] remarkable book."
"The Women Who Wrote the War is an absorbing account of a generation of brave and resourceful women who proved that they were every bit as good as men in covering the greatest war in history."
—Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.
"At last—at long last—here is a book that gives their rightful place history to a group of true heroes. Exhaustively researched, vividly narrated, Nancy Sorel's long-needed work illuminates an aspect of World War II which has been too long ignored."
—Robert A. Caro
