Editorial Reviews

Review


"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."
—Walter Kronkite

"These women must not be forgotten, their stories must be told NOW. [A] remarkable book."
—Dan Rather

"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

I lived through that period of time and yet there were so many things that I had no idea took place. The war accounts and the background and lives of the women who covered the events was extremely well described and provided captivating reading. The accounts on paper touched all the emotions and once started, the book was hard to put down.

One can find so much written about almost everything having to do with WW2. It is seldom --if ever---we find such a well researched and easy to read book that examines that war from a woman's perspective. And who better to provide a different perspective than a woman journalist? These women were truly amazing people. It is too bad that their viewpoint has been lost on the Current American public.

I had a little difficulty at first keeping all of the different journalists straight. But, once I got into the book, that no longer was an issue.

A must read for anyone interested in behind the scenes World War 2 history.

Impressive women, but dull reading. It has a "textbook quality" I got bored reading it and did not find it "gripping>"

This book introduced me to a part of History that, up to now, I was unaware of. As the Father of two daughters it was cool to discover that there were women breaking barriers and excelling at it. It would have been nice if there had been more examples of the stories they wrote, but otherwise an very good read

My only complaint (and this may be because I was reading it thru Kindle) it was hard to follow which journalist was being featured, Author would use full name one time, first name the next, and then last name only another time, especially when two journalists were in the chapter.
