Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this powerful record, author and English professor Browder (Her Best Shot: Women and Guns in America) collects first-person accounts from dozens of military women who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan, accompanied by vivid full-color portraits. Contributors span age groups, conflicts and military branches, and a number of issues: why they joined, their thoughts on spirituality, issues confronting them upon their return home, the dual challenges of being a soldier and a mother, being female in a field dominated by men, and more. Poignant, tear-jerking stories dominate; Sergeant Deidre Coley, deployed in the Gulf, lost an injured colleague-"the baby in the group"-because the locals that Coley asked for directions would not speak to women. Each chapter clusters around a different theme, including saying goodbye to friends and family, coming home to face unexpected complications, dealing with natives and supporting the mission. Candid and touching, with resonant photographs from Pflaeging, these brief narratives give voice to a too-often-overlooked aspect of female American experience.

Review

This collection of images and stories of female veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan gets to the heart of issues such as loss, camaraderie, and conflict, as well as motherhood, marriage, and sexism.--Military Officer



[This] book is essential both for serious scholars of the current conflict and for historians of gender relations in American society--Army History



Browder has compiled an eloquent documentary on the printed page from women whose views vary widely--and a tribute to and appreciation of their daily lives in war zones.--News Review



Readers may be tempted to deify these women for their contributions to the continuing struggle for female equality, but their unflinching accounts unfold to a tangible and poignant humanity.--Library Journal



[A] wonderful volume. . . . A fitting testament and tribute to our country's uniformed . . . heroines.--America



Candid and touching, with resonant photographs from Pflaeging, these brief narratives give voice to a too-often-overlooked aspect of female American experience.--Publishers Weekly

I think it's important for readers to gain greater insight into the valor and service of military women. I appreciate the book and its depiction of women combat veterans. The book now rests on my coffee table; serving as a memoir and important conversational piece. Thank you!

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book because the author was speaking at the Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project annual luncheon at the University of North Carolina Greensboro, NC. The book is very well done, great photographs and riveting first person stories of women's service in Iraq and Afghanistan. Dr. Browder's remarks at the luncheon highlighted the stories in her book. I would highly recommend this for school and public libraries as well as for anyone interested in military history.

Maybe I was too quick to order this book, but it is not what I expected. It is more of a 'reading' book and less of a 'photo' book. There are photos, but they are studio-type posed photos, not in-the-field action photos. The articles are intersting, but I guess I just don't have time for all the reading. Anybody know of some good photo books on women miliary?
