Ryan Jenkins con World War 2: Soldier Stories Part VI: Battlefield Stories from the Women of War (World War 2 Soldier Stories Book 6) (English Edition)
The unsung story of women in WWII
Women in military, fighting alongside their male counterparts seems to be a thing of science fiction when looking at today’s military. In WWII though, brave women took to the sky, committed themselves to dangerous missions and at times sacrificed so that others may live. They are the embodiment of the brave soldier that we come to applaud. The difference is they are all women, typically the unsung heroes of war.
This book covers just some of the amazing feats that women performed in WWII era Europe and Asia. Far from the “Rosie Riveters” back home, this book tells the tales of fearless and courageous women who put their lives on the line to fight for their countries. Their stories will move and excite you.
Discover the flight of the “Night Witches”. The fearsome women that patrolled the night sky in little more than pine and canvas planes, striking fear in the hearts of men. They organized missions that today are held in high regard for their complexity and organization. Read about the life of a female Nazi pilot who held the regime in high esteem long after the fall of Hitler. Fanaticism aside, she flew flights that some of the bravest men could not stomach.
Across the continent in Asia, read the story of a brave nurse who nearly sacrificed her own life in order to save the lives of others. There’s the tale of her daring supply raid and the lengths that she went to help some of the children prisoners held along with her. Even in the face of death, she sacrificed so they would be safer.
Even if you are not an avid history buff, these stories will fascinate you, intrigue you, and entertain you. The sacrifices and heroics of these brave women should be recognized. Do your part in tell their tale and order your copy now!
Comments From Other Readers
“I grabbed this book because I’m an avid World War II buff. I try to read everything I can get my hands on. I knew that women were common in the Soviet and even the German armies but I honestly had no idea of the extent of their involvement. History books seem to gloss this all over. I was glad to see that the author included women from both sides of the battle lines. Regardless of what side they fought on, history needs to be written for everyone, not just the winner. I found the book easy to read and while it’s short, I liked the content. This was really an awesome book!” - Nick A. (Salt Lake City, USA)
“I don’t really read much history when it comes to wars but I found the premise of women soldiers interesting. I never knew that they did all of that! It really puts things into perspective when you’re looking at today’s women versus the women in this book. I really enjoyed the story of the “Night Witches”. To find one woman willing to go through what they did is incredible but so many of them! The author did a great job at capturing my attention.” - Nicole W. (Toronto, Canada)
