Women Write the War
by Bee Pedersen
The Voices of Women Behind Operation Iraq Freedom

Women Write the War is one of those books that seems as if it has always been with us. It is the voice of the military woman, the woman who loves and waits at home alone with her unspeakable fears for her beloved warrior.

Women Write the War is an anthology, a collection of personal stories penned by women behind Operation Iraqi Freedom, the mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, grandmothers and girlfriends as the ones left behind with fear, hope and love. Several stories are written by servicewomen serving in Iraq who experienced the war firsthand. It is possibly the first book published about women on this current conflict. The anthology contains more than fifty stories and more than seventy photographs.

“Bee Pedersen has pieced together a proud new chapter in the history of this war. She performs a great service for those who have sons and daughters at war, and for those families who have yet to face these wounds of the heart.”
