Valiant Women: The Extraordinary American Servicewomen Who Helped Win World War II

Valiant Women is the story of the 350,000 American women who served in uniform during World War II. This interview brings together two amazing historians, Helen Fry and Lena Andrews, who have uncovered the unknown and heroic stories of women who served on both sides of the Atlantic.

These incredible women served in every service branch, in every combat theater, and in nearly two-thirds of the available military occupations at the time. They died for their country and received the nation’s highest honors. Their work was at the heart of the Allied strategy that won World War II.

Yet, until now, their stories have not been told. Now, military analyst Lena Andrews corrects the record with the definitive and comprehensive historical account of American servicewomen during World War II, based on new archival research, firsthand interviews with surviving veterans, and a deep professional understanding of military history and strategy.

The story of military women in World War II is, at its core, the story of World War II itself. If we want to understand this war, Andrews argues, then we must know its women
