This is a wonderful book that explains the situation surrounding women attending The Virginia Military Institute. Laura Brodie has an insight into the process that will help you understand just how difficult it was to assimilate women into an institution that had been all male since before the Civil War. VMI is an incredible place and Brodie shows just how hard they have worked to make it open to all who want to attend.

This was a great read. Brodie's intelligent aproach, appealing writing style, meticulously balanced views and enlightening insights kept me returning to the book as if it were a novel instead of non-fiction. Without reservation I recommend it for those wanting a transparent view of a complex world where personal honor and ethics are taught, revered and actively challenged on a daily basis.
