In 1918 the U.S. Army Signal Corps sent 223 women to France to help win World War I. Elizabeth Cobbs reveals the challenges these patriotic young women faced in a war zone where male soldiers resented, wooed, mocked, saluted, and ultimately celebrated them. Back on the home front, they fought the army for veterans’ benefits and medals, and won.

In tracing the rise of the modern idea of the American "new woman," Lynn Dumenil examines World War I's surprising impact on women and, in turn, women's impact on the war. Telling the stories of a diverse group of women, including African Americans, dissidents, pacifists, reformers, and industrial workers, Dumenil analyzes both the roadblocks and opportunities they faced. She richly explores the ways in which women helped the United States mobilize for the largest military endeavor in the nation's history. Dumenil shows how women activists staked their claim to loyal citizenship by framing their war work as homefront volunteers, overseas nurses, factory laborers, and support personnel as "the second line of defense." But in assessing the impact of these contributions on traditional gender roles, Dumenil finds that portrayals of these new modern women did not always match with real and enduring change. Extensively researched and drawing upon popular culture sources as well as archival material, The Second Line of Defense offers a comprehensive study of American women and war and frames them in the broader context of the social, cultural, and political history of the era.

Before the Oklahoma City Bombing and the Nine-Eleven Twin Towers Attack, there were the Black Tom Island and the Kingsland Explosions of 1916 and 1917 respectively. There were acts of sabotage as well as terror. The Black Tom Explosion in New Jersey has been historically described as one of the worst acts of terrorism on U.S. soil. Three women, (Anna Rushnak, Lulu Chapman and Mena Edwards) unlikely witnesses to the events at Black Tom, were vital in initiating and in furthering the investigation into this terrorism. Anna and Lulu faced the awful and awesome tasks of realizing that one of their own relatives (Michael Kristoff) was a saboteur in the Black Tom Explosion and had to be reported. This report started the investigation into the possibility of German sabotage. Only a few miles away, but widely separated by culture, by fame, and by circumstance was the young and beautiful Kodak model, Mena Edwards. She traveled in the highest and most elite German circles in Manhattan. It would take her a few years to report what she knew about Black Tom This book is the story of these four women and their acts of courage: acts that differed in how and when they occurred and in the circumstances faced by these women, but courageous nonetheless but once she did, she opened doors for the Mixed Claims Commission to require Germany to make reparations for its acts of sabotage on U.S. soil. Though there are excellent accounts of the Black Tom Explosion itself and circumstances surrounding it, none emphasize the roles of these three women. In terms of the Kingsland Explosion, Tessie McNamara stayed at her switchboard making calls and warning workers until she was almost blown out of her office. Her actions are credited with saving about 1400 workers at the plant. America's "Telephone Girl" did receive adulation at the time but her act of courage must never be forgotten. A new generation of reader needs to consider how she responded. This book is the story of these four women an

This book fills a gap in the historiographical and theoretical fields of race, gender, and war. In brief, Race and Gender in Modern Western Warfare (RGMWW) offers an introduction into how cultural constructions of identity are transformed by war and how they in turn influence the nature of military institutions and conflicts. Focusing on the modern West, this project begins by introducing the contours of race and gender theories as they have evolved and how they are employed by historians, anthropologists, sociologists, and other scholars. The project then mixes chronological narrative with analysis and historiography as it takes the reader through a series of case studies, ranging from the early nineteenth century to the Global War of Terror. The purpose throughout is not merely to create a list of so-called "great moments" in race and gender, but to create a meta-landscape in which readers can learn to identify for themselves the disjunctures, flaws, and critical synergies in the traditional memory and history of a largely monochrome and male-exclusive military experience. The final chapter considers the current challenges that Western societies, particularly the United States, face in imposing social diversity and tolerance on statist military structures in a climates of sometimes vitriolic public debate. RGMWW represents our effort to blend race, gender, and military war, to problematize these intersections, and then provide some answers to those problems.
