9780140076233: Women in War
From Publishers Weekly:

The courage and perseverance of female combatants in World War II, Korea, Vietnamand, more recently, El Salvadorremains little known. Saywell, a Canadian TV producer, here documents the role of women in armed conflicts from World War II to the present. Twenty-two women from seven countries describe the moral, emotional and practical dilemmas they faced in combat. Among them are WW II British Air Transport Auxiliary pilots who flew without armaments or radios; self-trained French and Polish resistance fighters; Israeli infantry women who fought zealously to earn the respect of their male comrades; American nurses who lost their idealism in Vietnam; and Salvadoran guerrillas who left their families for their cause. Saywell's lucid commentary does much to clarify the fighting woman's contribution to recent history. Photos. December

From Library Journal:

Views of war through the eyes of 22 women. Some took part in World War II either in the Allied forces or as resistance fighters. Others fought in the Israeli War of Independence or served as reporters or nurses in Indochina. Another was a war artist in the Falklands in 1982, and two more battled as guerrillas in El Salvador. These vignettes lead to unremarkable conclusions: Women in war discover new capabilities; like men, they can be valiant fighters for a cause in which they believe. We also learn that their male comrades generally support rather than harrass them. These stories are ably recounted, and they will appeal to many readers. Recommended for public libraries.
