From the Publisher"Stop the presses: the greatest generation had women in it. Yellin zeroes in on primary sources — letters, memoirs, and interviews that describe the war years as women actually experienced them. Yellin has done first-rate research and reporting."
— The New York Times Book Review
"Educational and dishy, Our Mothers' War is a graceful portrait of the other half of the greatest generation."
— Entertainment Weekly
"In this lively, smart, sometimes contrarian work of social history, New York Times writer Yellin explores the manifold roles of women in WW II....A superb contribution to the literature of WW II."
— Kirkus (starred review)
