A Few Good Women: America's Military Women from World War I to the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan [Monahan & Neidel-Greenlee]


Authors: Evelyn M. Monahan & Rosemary Neidel-Greenlee

Nonfiction, Paperback

Evelyn M. Monahan and Rosemary Neidel-Greenlee spent fifteen years combing through archives, journals, histories, and news reports, and gathering thousands of eyewitness accounts, letters, and interviews for this unprecedented chronicle of America’s “few good women.” Women today make up more than fifteen percent of the U.S. armed forces and serve alongside men in almost every capacity. Here are the stories of the battles these women fought to march beside their brothers, their tales of courage and fortitude, of indignities endured, of injustices overcome, of the blood they’ve shed and the comrades they’ve lost, and the challenges they still face in the twenty-first century.
