Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-A fascinating view of a pivotal time in U.S. history. Zeinert clearly presents the contributions of American women from Jacqueline Cochran, the head of the Woman's Air Force Service Pilots (WASP), through ``Rosie the Riveter,'' to every aspect of the war effort. Throughout, the stress is on the willingness and capability of the women to step into traditionally male-dominated professions and the uphill battle they faced to be accepted in these fields. The opposition may not surprise young readers, but its viciousness may. Zeinert does not overlook the irony that while the women were striving to be accepted without prejudice against their sex, racial segregation was the rule within their divisions. Profiles of well-known figures such as Eleanor Roosevelt and Margaret Bourke-White as well as less familiar people are interspersed throughout. Black-and-white photographs, mostly well reproduced, enhance the text. Schools will find this title useful both for reports on World War II and women's history, but it is so readable that it should find an audience despite its somewhat uninviting format. Young readers will want to know more about the women mentioned in the text. Unfortunately, most have yet to make it to the biography shelves.-Louise L. Sherman, Anna C. Scott School, Leonia, NJ

Telling archival photos and period magazine advertisements illustrate this account of the contributions made by American women during World War II. Chapters devoted to women flyers (both civilian and military), to women in medical fields, and even to women war correspondents home in on fascinating facts. The discussion of the work of women in war industries reveals such pertinent side issues as the lack of appropriate work clothes for women in the early 1940s and the racism that confronted black women eager to move up from their traditional work as domestics and cooks to better-paying blue-collar jobs. Cameos of such famous females of the era as the First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, flyer Cornelia Fort, and Dr. Emily Barringer as well as discussion of the volunteer efforts of teenage girls lend color and depth to the coverage. Interwoven into the highly readable text are women's reminiscences that inject the drama of eyewitness views and personal experience into Zeinert's tightly written war perspective.
