The Girls Who Stepped Out of Line: Untold Stories of the Women Who Changed the Course of World War II

War is the cause of untold death and destruction, a purveyor of human misery. World War II was no exception. The United States sent vast majorities of their Men abroad, and while their exploits are well known, History books have done a disservice to Women in not relating their actions and contributions to the Allied effort. The Girls Who Stepped Out of Line remedies this wrong. Alice Marble excelled as a Tennis player, she never backed down from a challenge and wanted to assist her country. She gleaned information from a Swiss paramour, which led to evidence used against the Nazis at the War Crimes trials. Betty McIntosh served in the OSS, where a radio program delivered disinformation and psychological warfare against the Japanese forces.

The Girls Who Stepped Out of Line serves with distinction as a revelatory look at Women who gave everything they had. Each chapter brings a new personality possessing pure grit and courage and humility. None of the featured Women sought fame or notice in their acts, they just did what needed to be done. They were overshadowed in the past but now receive their overdue plaudits.
