Lovely pictorial paperback covers showing very modest surface wear from storage, very light soil on foot of page block from moving on the shelf, internally as new save for light ghosting from erased pencil price on blank fep. No names, tears or soil. 543 pages. Annotated and illustrated. Detailed history of the Women's Army Corps. Includes color section illustrating women's uniforms over time. This volume covers the thirty-three years of Corps history between V-J Day and the decision by Congress in 1978 to end the WACs' separate status and assimilate them into the other branches of the Army (except the combat arms). The current volume tells how the directors of the Women's Army Corps struggled to achieve the goals that we take for granted today. It tells of the years they spent pushing and prodding the Army, the Department of Defense, and Congress to achieve Regular Army and Reserve status, military credit for their WAAC service, and promotion above the grade of lieutenant colonel.
