Summary
"From the Revolutionary War to present day, women have proudly served in the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard as nurses, pilots, engineers, soldiers, and more. They dressed as men, worked for little pay and no benefits, and endured prejudice to break down barriers and earn their place beside their fellow servicemen. The achievements and courageous acts of these women forever changed the way the military operates!"--Provided by publisher
Summary
More than 80 empowering portraits of courageous American military women from history explain their important achievements and include such notables as Harriet Tubman, Clara Barton and Coral Wong Pietsch.
