Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
American women have served their country at every opportunity in our nation's history, fighting for what they believe in a myriad of ways. Zeinert's rich volume makes clear and comprehensible a very complicated conflict in U.S. history, while illuminating women's changing roles in society, as well as what women have done to affect change and shape our nation's history. Using photos and quotes from the women who fought in Vietnam, worked for civilian relief agencies, or participated in anti-war resistance from home, the author presents a multi-faceted and unbiased picture of a controversial, yet highly significant, time. Insets highlight the life's work and influence of particular women, such as the war photographer Dickey Chapelle, who personally claimed to have "stayed the longest and gone further forward than any reporter, man or woman." More than a reference or textbook, this is a valuable story for all American students, told from a perspective that is too often neglected. Zeinert's other books include Those Remarkable Women of the American Revolution, Those Courageous Women of the Civil War, and Those Incredible Women of World War II. 2000, The Millbrook Press Inc., Ages 12 up, $28.40. Reviewer: Jessica Becker—Children's Literature
School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-Zeinert chronicles the roles and responsibilities of the estimated 11,000 women who served in both military and civilian positions during the Vietnam War. The first chapter provides an excellent overview of the origins of the conflict, the mixed feelings over U.S. involvement, and the changes in women's roles in American society prior to and after the war. The remaining chapters provide anecdotes, quotations, and factual information about women in the military, nurses, volunteers for civilian-service organizations such as the USO and USAID, war correspondents, and those who served on the home front. An afterword discusses the fate of South Vietnam, the women's experiences upon arriving home, and their successful quest for a national memorial of their own. Sidebars profile the service of African-American women and the roles of Vietnamese women on both sides of the conflict. In clear, straightforward prose, the author portrays an aspect of the war about which many adults, much less students, remain unaware. Readers will appreciate the diversity of experiences represented. Well-placed, black-and-white and full-color photographs, reproductions, and a map supplement the text. This book offers candid snapshots of life during the Vietnam War for report writers and general audiences.-Leah J. Sparks, Bowie Public Library, MD Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
