The Unwomanly Face of War
The Unwomanly Face of War An Oral History of Women in World War II By Aleksievich, Svetlana Book - 2017 | First Edition

This is a very moving book. These are the stories of young girls going to the Russian front in WW II. They served as nurses, doctors, telephone operators, partisans, medical assistants, pilots, antiaircraft operators and snipers. At times I had to stop reading due to the emotions these women passed on in their stories. Every one should read this book and understand why war is hell, from a woman's perspective. This book should be essential reading for all.
