Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In 1917 the United States entered World War I. At that time, American women stepped forward to fill many of the same roles that their grandmothers held during the Civil War. Many took the place of men in factories as the demands for wartime goods soared. Other women joined various relief organizations where their primary duties included supplying "doughboys" with extra items of comfort. In some cases, women joined the medical corps and served as rear echelon or battlefield nurses. Countless other American mothers, sisters, aunts and girlfriends knitted socks or kept the home fires burning in anticipation of the return of their loved ones. The saga of American women during the Great War is stirringly told in this history book. The author touches on the major ways in which American women contributed to the war effort. Specific individual women are highlighted, such as Jeanette Rankin, the sole woman in the U.S. Congress at the time the declaration of war was called for by Woodrow Wilson. Ms. Rankin voted against war in 1917 and again in 1941 after Pearl Harbor. Her brave story, as well those of countless other women who labored to help the Allies defeat Germany, is ably chronicled in this fine book laced with many illustrations. 2001, Millbrook, $27.40. Ages 10 up. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up-Once again the author of The Valiant Women of the Vietnam War (2000) and Those Remarkable Women of the American Revolution (1996, both Millbrook) shows how women contributed during a time of war. She first explains how World War I got started and how the United States became involved. Separate chapters treat industrial workers, nurses, journalists, navy personnel, and "unsung heroes." Each chapter has quotes from diaries, reports, or letters that show what the women thought and experienced. The black-and-white photos and color reproduction of a recruiting poster are interesting and informative. A well-written, organized book.-Cathy Coffman, Peoria Public Library, AZ Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
