Product Details
Edited by Michael E. Stevens

Michael Stevens offers a brief introduction to the experiences of Wisconsin women in World War II through selections from oral history interviews in which women addressed issues concerning their wartime lives. More than thirty women describe how they balanced their more traditional roles in the home with the new demands placed on them by the biggest global conflict in history.

This book provides a rich mix of insights, incorporating the perspectives of workers in factories, in offices, and on farms as well as those of wives and mothers who found their work in the home. In addition, the volume contains accounts by women who served overseas in the military and the Red Cross.

These accounts provide readers with a vivid picture of how women coped with the stresses created by their daily lives and by the additional burden of worrying about loved ones fighting overseas.

Michael E. Stevens is the former State Historic Preservation Officer at the Wisconsin Historical Society. He is editor of the series "Voices of the Wisconsin Past," which also includes Letters from the FrontWomen Remember the War, and Remembering the Holocaust.
