"Traditionally, the story of the Third Reich has been a story of men, yet women participated in all aspects of the war and on both sides of the Nazi flag. This dictionary, with entries on more than 100 women, shows the diversity of their roles in this turbulent and disturbing period. It includes entries on resistance fighters, nurses, entertainers, writers, filmmakers, spies, and prisoners with exceptional spirit and courage. The women came from all the countries involved with the Third Reich and from many different occupations before their involvement in the war - housewives, secretaries, singers, film stars, pilots, and athletes. These biographical essays provide a woman's perspective on the history of the Third Reich."--Jacket
