bullet The Good Soldier: The Story of a Southwest Pacific Signal Corps Wac
by Selene H.C. Weise
One of only 150 Signal Corps women assigned to the Southwest Pacific area in World War II, Selene Weise offers a unique perspective to the role of the Signal Corps. The Good Soldier is the record of 22 months of service in the Army, 14 of which were spent in the Southwest Pacific area as a Signal Corps WAC. Selene Weise's observations and experiences offer a woman's view of the war. Surviving twenty-two months and acquiring three battle stars, Ms. Weise finally returned home only to find continued prejudice against a woman in uniform who had served her country overseas in battle zones.
