Editorial Reviews

Review

“So meticulously researched and jam-packed with engaging stories of extraordinary women, interwoven with the essential facts of the conflict in the Pacific. What an accomplishment! Kathryn Atwood’s finely detailed and fast-paced writing makes for fascinating reading, exquisite close-ups of little-known women and a much needed perspective on World War II. Before the bombing of Pearl Harbor through the long years of Japanese occupation, women bravely, day by day, stood with the victims of war and thwarted the enemy. Finally, their stories are told.” —Mary Cronk Farrell, author of Pure Grit: How American World War II Nurses Survived Battle and Prison Camp in the Pacific


“Atwood’s vivid, accessible storytelling brings to life the oft’ forgotten female spies, saboteurs, and survivors who were utterly crucial to American victory in World War II. This book rightly solidifies their place in human history.” —Ben Montgomery, author of The Leper Spy and New York Times bestseller Grandma Gatewood's Walk


“Anyone who thinks that women’s only responsibility in World War II was keeping morale high on the home front will change this view after reading about spies, prisoners of war, guerilla fighters and other courageous women in Kathryn J. Atwood's Women Heroes of  World War II—the Pacific Theater. By using their own voices from memoirs, diaries and other sources, Atwood clearly lets us know that valor is not, and never has been, only a men’s trait.” —Elizabeth M. Norman author of We Band of Angels: The Untold Story of American Women Trapped on Bataan


Kathryn Atwood’s Women Heroes of WWII-the Pacific Theater tells the stories of fifteen gutsy ladies—writers, agents, activists, nurses, survivors, and others—whose bravery, resilience, and determination to take risks, confront adversity, and even face death are revealed from a perspective too often ignored. A modern day Profiles in Courage.  David Rensin, co-author with Louis Zamperini of his autobiography, “Devil at My Heels,” and his collection of life lessons, “Don’t Give Up, Don’t Give In.”


“Kathryn Atwood presents refreshing perspective into the horrors of the Pacific War through the forgotten stories of heroines who have mostly been lost in the vast historiography of World War II.”  —Jenny Chan, director, Pacific Atrocities Education


“A worthy addition to military collections.” —Kirkus Reviews


"Amid the cruelty and inhumanity of "the war without mercy," Atwood presents readers, young and old, with inspiring stories of women whose courage and endurance restore our faith in the ability of ordinary people to survive, resist and ultimately triumph over evil." —Robert Messer, Associate Professor Emeritus, 20th Century U.S. History, University of Illinois at Chicago


“This follow-up to Atwood's Women Heroes of World War II (2011) is part helpful informational text, part enthralling narrative; each of these 15 profiles could constitute a cliffhanger screenplay” —Booklist, starred review


“A suitable addition to works on World War II and a fine follow-up to Atwood’s Women Heroes of World War II” —School Library Journal


"Highly recommended. It’s aimed at teens, but I thoroughly enjoyed it." —The Deliberate Reader
