Women at the Heart of War:
Soldiers Without Guns
Anne Chapman, National Center for History in the Schools, UCLA, 1997. Paperback.

This primary source unit documents the multiple ways in which women from diverse regions were affected by World War II. Sections are: German Women and Hitler's Ideology, Women's Employment in the United States, Gender Equality in Soviet Combat Forces, and Women's Attitudes about the War in China. Activities and discussion ideas, charts, introduction activities, and a timeline enhance the unit. Highly recommended.
