Heroism Begins with Her: Inspiring Stories of Bold, Brave, and Gutsy Women in the U.S. Military Reviews

  • Jennifer Alvarez

    Just a fabulous book! Female heroes are featured from the Revolutionary War to the present. These women faced complex challenges of gender, expectations, and disbelief, in some cases, but went on to forge paths in the military where none existed for them. When you get into their individual stories, you learn their motivations. These are women who saw needs and filled them, women who faced danger to help others, and women who knew their strengths and persevered until they won their place. My daug

    Just a fabulous book! Female heroes are featured from the Revolutionary War to the present. These women faced complex challenges of gender, expectations, and disbelief, in some cases, but went on to forge paths in the military where none existed for them. When you get into their individual stories, you learn their motivations. These are women who saw needs and filled them, women who faced danger to help others, and women who knew their strengths and persevered until they won their place. My daughter is currently a cadet in the Army ROTC college program and is having a fabulous experience. The women in this book helped forge the path for her to be treated with respect and equality. An inspiring family read!

    Excellent book!

  • Debra Faulk

    This book is great it goes through history and tells about American women who were true heros. This would be good for teen girls to read and learn about women heros from our country.

    A terrific book highlighting women in the military. Very inspiring.

    I won this book on Goodreads. This is an interesting book that spans American history from the Revolutionary War to present day. It give a summary of facts about each war, and then gives the biographies of some of the women who are representative of each conflict. The table of contents presents the information chronologically. Also, extra information such as ranks in the different branches of service, a time line, and bibliography are given at the end. The compilation of all of this information

The compilation of all of this information must have been a formidable task, but it was very well done.

    4+ stars for this well-researched treatment of women in the military. It could almost be considered an encyclopedia on the subject. Women have made a great many contributions to our military and it is inspiring to read all of their stories. In modern times we have thousands of women doing such a wide range of roles and I am not certain if the book did a thorough job in representing that with the stories they chose.

    Thank you to HarperCollins and Edelweiss for a digital ARC in exchange for an hon

    The egalley layout was odd so I hope that’s not what the print copy looks like.

    Note to self:

    Photographs vs illustrations.

    features the women of the United States' past and present who have served in the military. In doing so, she also traces the progress made by women who sought to gain more acceptance, greater recognition, and an official status for their service.

    In the early years, many of the women who served were camp followers, nurses, spies; although, a surprising number of women also disguised themselves as men and officially enlisted. In later years, as women were official instated into the military, Conkling continues to emphasize the diversity of roles played by women. She also features a number of women who are firsts in their fields.

    This book is not one that needs to be read cover to cover. Read about the women who served in one war or perhaps thumb through the book to find all the medical professionals. This book would be a good starting point for a research project.
