From the Publisher
"[C]ontains many aids for the researcher, including four different lists of entries, a comprehensive timeline, and an index. There are also historiographical essays on such subjects as Women, Medicine, and the Military and an extensive bibliography."
"[t]his two-volume biographical dictionary is one of the first to celebrate women specifically in active military roles….This book stands apart because of its scholary approach and particular attention paid to women in combat roles."
"This beautifully illustrated two-volume work may be the most important encyclopedia ever written in the field of women and war….when future historians discern the point at which the study of women and war reached a critical mass, they may conclude that the publication of ^IAmazons to Fighter Pilots^R marks the dividing point between an era when military women were ignored as irrelevant and one in which historians can no longer ignore their contributions….a must for all university libraries and serious researchers in the field of women and war. It will be an invaluable resource for decades to come."
The Journal of Military History
"Amazons to Fighter Pilots is suitable for the general reader as well as the specialist….there is no other biographical dictionary that pulls together women combatants in quite this way, making it essential for women's studies and military history collections. ^IAmazons to Fighter Pilots^R is also recommended for general reference collections in college and university libraries, in public libraries, and in high school libraries."
Reference & User Services Quarterly
"Amazons to Fighter Pilots is a necessary addition to college and university libraries and a sound selection for high-school and public libraries."
Booklist, Starred Review
"This peerless work, situated at the nexus of military history and women's studies, is an essential companion to more male-biased biographical resources like Harper Encyclopedia of Military Biography. Highly recommended. All collections."
