"In Their Own Words: American Women in World War I" presents first-person accounts by American women who served in World War I and the challenges they faced such as discrimination, danger and death in their desire to serve their country. The book also discusses men in combat, civilians and the effects of war. The discussion is supported by a grant from WWI in America.
