In Colorado Women in World War II Gail M. Beaton interweaves nearly eighty oral histories--including interviews, historical studies, newspaper accounts, and organizational records--and historical photographs (many from the interviewees themselves) to shed light on women's participation in the war, exploring the dangers and triumphs they felt, the nature of their work, and the lasting ways in which the war influenced their lives. Beaton offers a new perspective on World War II--views from field hospitals, small steel companies, ammunition plants, college classrooms, and sugar beet fields--giving a rare look at how the war profoundly transformed the women of this state.     336 pages pb
