vii, 270 pp. Glossary, bibliography. "Vietnam's significant but unheralded contingent of American women was made up of the first females to operate under the continual combat conditions of guerrilla warfare. Yet in the years since the war, their voice has remained strangely quiet while male novelists, journalist, and veterans explored the war and its consequences. Now, as interviewed by Kathryn Marshall, twenty of those voices speak, in monologues full of the uncomfortable alienation of a neglected minority from an unwanted war." (from front jacket flap)
