My Mother was in the First Wave Group. It brought back memories of how proud she was to be in the Navy. I have given the books to my siblings as well as older woman whose husbands were in the Navy. I thought it was well written and I enjoyed it.
Sadly, most military women today seem unaware of either their history, or just how hard it was for their predecessors to not only to be taken seriously, but to serve at all during peacetimes. Joy Bright Hancock was arguably one of the most important figures in accomplishing those goals, and her book tells of each battle fought to overcome male power structure resistance. This remarkable autobiography should be required reading not only for every woman in the Navy, but every woman in the military, regardless of branch.
