Overview

Women in Vietnam is an oral history told through the distinct, personal and moving voices of the American women who served in Vietnam during the war. These women were nurses, Red Cross workers (Donut Dollies), and WAC's (Women's Army Corps). The women served in field hospitals as nurses, entertained the troops at base camps in fire zones and were intelligence analysts, among other duties. All were volunteers. None were drafted. Some women were wounded. Some were killed. On returning home during and after the war, some suffered from PTSD. All these women are real veterans despite remaining essentially invisible to the public. Their stories are a powerful reminder of the role women played during the Vietnam War.

Editorial Reviews

Linda Ellerbee
"The women of Vietnam have been too often forgotten. Anyone who reads this book will never forget them."
Liz Trotta
"With the skill of an old Saigon hand, Ron Steinman adds a new chapter to the history of America's longest war. These are poignant stories, told by valiant women who volunteered for Vietnam to support the men who fought there -- and often to save lives.

I found this book very interesting. I served in Vietnam, and several women were killed in my area of operations while I was there. Their role in Vietnam has been vastly under-rated, and this tells some of their stories very well.
