appointed titles, though She characterizes figures in the book with no documentation to do so is this person really sniveling, was this one no longer fecund and why do those things matter She uses outdated and unacceptable ethnic terms gypsy comes to mind and uses other inappropriate or incorrect words that an editor should have caught snarked, fulsome, others I d like to read a good book on

during those years Whether it was diaries, oral stories, or old medical documents, I felt interested in the stories of these women, and it never once felt boring This is a WW2 book that I think people should check out sometime, as it does give a new perspective in what can go on behind the scenes at home ARC received by the publisher in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own. flag 3

bother to review a book like this, but since I was gifted a copy a few months before release I figured I should do one anyway so that people can decide whether or not to purchase it.This is not a life changing book There is nothing in here that is ground shattering or will significantly add to the mountains of things we know about World War II In fact, most of the facts presented by this book have done better elsewhere Instead, we get to listen to the opinions of Sarah Ros Normally I wouldn t bother to review a book like this, but since I was gifted a copy a few months before release I figured I should do one anyway so that people can decide whether or not to purchase it.This is not a life changing book There is nothing in here that is ground shattering or will significantly add to the mountains of things we know about World War II In fact, most of the facts presented by this book have done better elsewhere Instead, we get to listen to the opinions of Sarah Rose, who really hates France and anything French people do, but it fine with it when British people do the same things.For a history book, this one is okay Unfortunately, the author often mixes up fact, speculation, and opinion, without really separating the three She narrates the story and tells what the characters are thinking and feeling as if they absolutely thought and felt those things, despite there being no evidence for it She takes the lives of real men and woman and dramatizes them to the point where they cease to have been real, but are now fictional heroes and heroines And if you don t really care about historical fact and prefer entertainment, this will probably be a great read for you But I wonder how the actual women who existed would feel seeing their stories presented in this way I wonder if Sarah Rose cares.Even the name of this book says, I m writing this book to take advantage of a trend Ever since Radium Girls was released we ve been given a huge slog of _______ Girls books Not women, girls, because it makes sense to infantilize them in a book that claims to be advocating for them The title of the book really makes no sense, because almost nothing the girls in the book do has anything to do with D Day But us ignorant, stupid Americans only care about D Day and only care about girls, so that s what it s named The title absolutely oversells the actions of this women and makes their efforts to be something that it isn t, all in the name of selling the book, making money, and gaining fame off the backs of women like me who really DO want to read about women in history who did great things.People are going to want to praise this book because the idea behind it is noble and good But to me, it isn t enough just to write history books that feature women I want these books to be well researched, historically accurate, and unembellished I believe that female readers of history books deserve to be treated like male ones, and not condescended to or told that, You re a woman so I wrote this book so an idiot like you will be entertained by it There are plenty of authors out there that can do this, but not this one Anyone can write a history book and shove their opinion on it I have higher standards, and any lover of history books should too.I rated this book as a 2 because It s ok is really the most generous reaction I can give it flag Like see review Danc
