The writing is so good, so fresh, that I felt at time I was seeing the war for the first time -- even though I've been a student of WWII and a writer about it for 40 years. I walked away from Sorel's book with a firm desire to learn more, to read more about these amazing women.

Ms Sorel has carried out some incredibly detailed research to bring us the stories of the women correspondents who reported the Second World War from the front line.4/5(44).

I mean!. Maybe someday I’ll have the emotional fortitude to write a full review, but today is not that day, friends. The Soviet Union was the first nation to allow women pilots to fly combat missions. During World War II the Red Air Force formed three all-female units -- grouped into separate fighter, dive bomber, and night bomber regiments -- while also recruiting other women to fly with mostly male units/5(7).

Women’s lives were not considered to be of general interest in Ireland until Gay Byrne started talking about them on the radio in the s, but women were writing about their lives all along. Women Who Fought In the Civil War Submitted By: Tierahnee Balfour History Enhanced Mrs.

Teresa Prober 19 October It is an accepted convention that the Civil War was a man’s fight, but to the women in that time period, it was not.

Feminist historians have claimed that women's writing from the front gave access to a more authentic representation of the war. Literary historian David Trotter asserts that the addition of women's writing helps provide a more encompassing, and thus, stronger picture of Britain's involvement in the First World War.

All that said, this book is a beautiful love story and is also quite funny. It might be weird to admit this but if I recall correctly the book nearly made me cry — seriously. This book may be “about” war, but it is, like most of these books, mostly about people.

Knight’s Cross: A. New data shows that writing women still face bias in book reviews—and in a piece called Women Write About Family, Men Write About War, Andrew Piper and Richard Jean So of The New Republic poke at the stereotypes that still hound women course, women do write war fiction, writes Susanne Carter in Feminist Teacher, and that oft-ignored body of literature deserves another look.
