This was a great follow-up to MAKE YOUR BED. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the way that Adam McRaven brings his experience to life. Having grown up at the same time as the author, I was able to relate to his story in a personal way. Being a Navy veteran, his stories allowed me to remember some of my own times in the Navy in a fond way. I consider him to be a modern-day hero and someone today's youth should aspire to emulate.
I really loved this book. I found it fascinating how these young women embraced the challenge they were given and did their part in helping to shorten the war thereby saving lives. I believe these young girls were on the forefront of the women’s rights movement. Liz Mundy does a marvelous job telling the stories of these unsung and little known heroes. I recommend this book for anyone interested history.
I really enjoyed reading this book and found it to be inspirational. By doing the small things in life every day, you can accomplish great things one step at a time.
This true sad story of the women working in the factories painting the dials of clocks and aircraft instrument planes with radium, not knowing of the radiation poisoning that was taking place.
