This book is a great way to honor the many American servicewomen from World War II. Their sacrifice mostly goes unnoticed and the information here talks about their history and the types of uniforms they wore. The design of special badges, emblems, service bars and pins are shown throughout the book.
All the information given was carefully researched to provide an factual accounting of the part of service women in our history. Their pay and rank as compared to men was far different. As you may gather it was lower of course. The women were often put in terrible situations and the courage they developed enabled them to endure and become stronger. All of this makes fascinating reading and makes you appreciate so much more all the sacrifices they made in defense of protecting and honoring our country.
