The second volume of the Women for Victory series records the history and uniforms of the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC), the first American servicewomen's organization in World War II to enlist female noncombatant volunteers for service with the United States Army, and to employ them in other than medical capacities. This unique, in-depth study reveals many rarely known facts about this vanguard female wartime organization. Authentic uniform attire, also worn by the successor organization the Women's Army Corps, is presented in color photographs, never before documented with this depth of completeness and detail. With over 1,150 personal and archival illustrations, this reference work is an unparalleled and indispensable source for scholars of feminine and military history, veterans, collectors, costume designers, re-enactors and others interested in the history and dress of American women in wartime service.
