While women are officially barred from combat in the American armed services, in the current war, where there are no front lines, the ban on combat is virtually meaningless More than in any previous conflict in our history, American women are engaging with the enemy, suffering injuries, and even sacrificing their lives in the line of duty.When Janey Comes Marching Home juWhile women are officially barred from combat in the American armed services, in the current war, where there are no front lines, the ban on combat is virtually meaningless More than in any previous conflict in our history, American women are engaging with the enemy, suffering injuries, and even sacrificing their lives in the line of duty.When Janey Comes Marching Home juxtaposes forty eight photographs by Sascha Pflaeging with oral histories collected by Laura Browder to provide a dramatic portrait of women at war Women from all five branches of the military share their stories here stories that are by turns moving, comic, thought provoking, and profound Seeing their faces in stunning color photographic portraits and reading what they have to say about loss, comradeship, conflict, and hard choices will change the ways we think about women and war Serving in a combat zone is an all encompassing experience that is transformative, life defining, and difficult to leave behind By coming face to face with women veterans, we who are outside that world can begin to get a sense of how the long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have shaped their lives and how their stories may ripple out and influence the experiences of all American women.The book accompanies a photography exhibit of the same name opening May 1, 2010, at the Women in Military Service to America Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery, and continuing to travel around the country through 2011.

This turned out to be interesting than I thought it was going to be This was an inward look at women who have served in the various branches of the US military This book contained tiny snippets from many different women They all had a different story to tell because what they brought to the military table and what they took away from the experience varied greatly These many women spoke conviction and complete candor on why or how they joined, what their expectations were, how it affected their [...]

Another excellent book about women in a non traditional field The stories told in this book are SO important to share, for multiple reasons to show what women can contribute in the world of combat, to show that women have a wide range of opinions between them, for the humanity women bring to such a stark environment, to demonstrate the strength women are capable of, and to elucidate reasons to think carefully before we go to war As in any industry, employing an increasing number of women change [...]

Although it was a bit hard to keep track of each speaker on audio some of the readers sounded similar , the content was often interesting if a bit repetitive It s not a subject I know much about, but still there were some surprising stories What sticks with me most is how hard it is to adjust to civilian life after combat deployment One woman explains her frustration at civilians by wondering why aren t they moving faster Don t they know there s a war on Something like that The variety of perspe [...]

Did you know their are women platoon leaders who ve lead in combat in Iraq and Afganistan Me neither The book comes out of a photography exhibit of women in the US military who have served mostly in Iraq and Afganistan, though some have been in long enough to have served in Korsovo Each chapter has the excerpts from women on a particular topic like why they joined sometimes patriotism, sometimes because they needed to turn their lives around , motherhood, coming home from a war zone, etc Their t [...]

Mixing Oral history interviews with portraits of various women who served and deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, this book introduces the reader to various issues that face women who serve in our Armed Forces.Why I picked this up Found this book in the stacks when I was shelf reading.Why I finished it This short book allows you a glimpse into the life of a female deployed soldier.It drove me nuts that there wasn t an index in the back with the page number of everyone s portrait The authors split [...]

Read through this as part of my research for a grad school project However, had I known about it earlier, I would have read it sooner As a former Naval officer who spent her time split between serving onboard ship and serving at a shore command, the lives of many of these women were just not something I was in a position to truly understand I am glad to see that books like this are out there, letting people know and see that the impacts of war and military service on women are just as important [...]

Features a collection of tales of female soldiers as they share their experiences in war theatres Engaging and insightful, at times sad.

I recommend these interviews with women who serve in the armed forces and were deployed in Iraq Kuwait Afghanistan Not in depth analysis or philosophizing, but insight into daily life, their combat experiences, and how they view themselves as soldiers The portraits add a lot too.

Great book listened to it as an audiobook, so I was slightly thrown off a couple of times when a few of the interviews were used than once, but that would be my only reason for not giving it the 5 stars Wonderfully fresh new point of view I d love to hear see books like this

I give this high marks because of its subject The format a coffee table book can be awkward but it is terrific for social reading by friends and kids.
