A fascinating topic, but unfortunately not that fascinating of a take on it. Or maybe I wasn't in the mood? Or maybe I wish I had read the original edition? In any case, I'm glad I found it, but also glad it was relatively brief. Much of a muchness in the genre.

Amusingly illustrated anecdotal contemporary account of life as a "Rosie". highly entertaining a must read for anyone interested in women's war work in the US during WWII.

An early entry in the mathematical popularization genre. Nice start, but a little muddled and disorganized.

We are probably most of us aware of Rosie the Riveter and that women joined the workforce in large numbers in WWII to build the materials needed to win the war. This is a look into what it actually felt like to go work on the line building the machines of war. And how did society react to women in the workforce like never before?

You can tell that the author would be delightful to sit down over a cup of coffee and talk about her experiences with. A warm and engaging tale of two friends working in a factory over their summer break. A fairly short book but worth the read.… (mere)
