The Women for Victory series provides a thorough and authoritative reference for American servicewomen's history and uniforms of WWII, and is designed for scholars of women's or military history, veterans, collectors, re-enactors and others interested in the history and dress of these servicewomen on active military service. Carefully researched historical background information about the female wartime services is combined with comprehensive documentation of their distinctive uniforms. Color photos of original clothing and accessories, modeled in full-length studies and supported by close-up views, show various uniforms and insignia in detail. The text and color photographic portions are supplemented by original wartime photos, many previously unpublished, as well as documents, tables and drawings. Vol.1 examines the two oldest female military components of the U.S. armed forces: the Army Nurse Corps, and Navy Nurse Corps. The book also covers two lesser known groups of militarized medical female service personnel: the Army Hospital Dietitians and Army Physical Therapists.
