Event Details

Gail will discuss Colorado Women in WWII, which is also the title of her book published by University Press in 2020.

Reviews of the book and her presentations:

"This book provides sweeping coverage of the development of women's units in all branches of the military during World War II and the experiences of Colorado women within those units, tribute to those individual women, and recognition to an inland state's significant contributions to the war effort. An important contribution to both Colorado and US women's history."

"Beaton's work is well-researched and demonstrates a variety of resources. The oral histories offer an invaluable insight in to the lives, contributions, and legacy of various Colorado women during World War II."

"An excellent history of American women's service in World War II, with each chapter focusing on a particular branch of service. Information on the experience of individual Colorado women as they travel the world in service to their country illustrate the breadth of their involvement in the war effort. Excellent research makes this book a great book for both historians and general readers."
