"1942, World War II. The most terrible war in human history. Millions are dead; millions more are still to die. The Nazis rampage across Europe and eye far-off America. The green, untested American army is going up against the greatest fighting force ever assembled--the armed forces of Nazi Germany. But something has changed. A court decision makes females subject to the draft and eligible for service. So in this World War II, women and girls fight, too. As the fate of the world hangs in the balance, three girls sign up to fight. Rio Richlin, Frangie Marr, and Rainy Schulterman are average girls, girls with dreams and aspirations, at the start of their lives, at the start of their loves. Each has her own reasons for volunteering. Not one expects to see actual combat. Not one expects to be on the front lines. Rio, Frangie, and Rainy will play their parts in the war to defeat evil and save the future of the human race. They will fear and they will rage; they will suffer and they will inflict suffering; they will hate and they will love. They will fight the greatest war the world has ever known." -- From dust jacket.… (mere)

A WWII story, but alternative history, where women were allowed to serve in the war. This book follows three such women: one farm-raised and no stranger to hard work (and her sexy best friend), a smart Jewish woman, facile in several languages, interested in military intelligence, and a small black woman, interested in being a medic. Each serving in a different capacity in different groups, they are eventually united in Northern Africa, battling the Germans. I liked the anti-officer, follow-your-sergeant theme, the crisp treatment of racism both against the black Frangie and the Jewish Rainy and the camaraderie of the various units, but was bored at times by the lead character, Rio, who was the central focus and hero of the book, and the protracted training routines, that will never be the equal of Private Benjamin.

A reimagining of WWII with female soldiers joining the fight. Various points of view from the girls tell the stories of an intelligence gatherer, an enlisted white girl, and an enlisted black girl. I know just who I'm going to give this book to when the school copy comes. 3.5 stars ( )

Michael Grant is, just as you would expect from his work on Animorphs, magnificent at showing the devastating effects of war on the souls of young people. I really enjoyed the different perspectives of the three main characters.

An alternate history where women were able to fight in WW2. Follows the lives of 3 enlisted female soldiers - Rainy, a jewish woman who puts herself in for the intelligence corp and comes up against male prejudice so has to prove she is smart enough. Rio - a white foot soldier who enlists after her sister is killed in the Navy in action. And finally Frangie - a black American woman who must confront both sexism and racism in order to fight and earn money for her poverty stricken family.

Comment : Grant alternates between the characters in each chapter but I like how the timeline means that sometimes one character like Rio will have 3 chapters in a row dedicated to her. I think Grant has probably tones down the sexism that WOULD have occurred at that time - the male soldiers seem very subdued and I honestly don't think that female and male would have shared barracks. That being said, this is a fascinating look at what might have happened and the consequences.

First in a series, I will be purchasing the others. ( )

This was an awesome war read with fierce heroines and plenty of suspense. The theme is strength and perseverance and I'm not going to lie, the concept will open your eyes to life on the front lines. It's scary, it's emotional, and it's as real as fiction gets.

Each character had their own story, but in the end, their webs and lives intertwined. Whether it was a gender battle or a race one, the female soldiers never surrendered. Each one proved that there was a place for them in the war and while it was a whirlwind of uncertainty, they continued to fight and take pride in their duty.

It was a historical fiction so I can't really complain about all of the war chapters, but the book is big and I definitely craved more letters and interactions from home. ( )

I dedicate this book to the magnificent Kurdish women soldiers of Kobani. How could I not?

And to my equally magnificent if slightly less deadly wife, Katherine (K.A.) Applegate, our son, Joke, and daughter, Julia
