About this product
- DescriptionDuring World War II, the U.S. military employed all-female bands to support bond drives. These bands drew such attention that they were placed on tour, raising money for the war and boosting morale. Even after the war ended, the bands would last for some 60 years. Based on Jill Sullivan's interviews with over 70 surviving band members, Bands of Sisters: U.S. Women's Military Bands during World War II tells the tale of this remarkable period in the history of American women. The opportunities presented by military service inevitably promoted new perspectives on what women could accomplish outside of the home, resulting in a lifetime of lasting relationships that would inspire future generations of musicians.
