Children's LiteratureThe book traces the roots of the Persian Gulf War and the role women played in the military, as correspondents, as medics, and on the homefront. It is a very informative book on the subject and probably one of a very few that has been done for youth. It is very readable with fairly large print and black-and-white photos. One will learn a great deal from the text and the pictures. It is an excellent source for anyone who is interested in learning about the role of women in war and much of the information will probably be surprising to most readers. Since it has a great deal of information about Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom it even could be one of the best sources for the average adult. It will also be helpful to the young woman who is thinking about a military career. It is the kind of book that could be used for the reluctant reader and for a history/social studies assignment. It should be included in public and school library collections. 2006, Twenty-First Century Books, Ages 12 to 16.
