    "Highly recommended. The women of the ATA made a significant contribution to the allied war effort. It is time that these brave women and men were given recognition. Everyone should welcome this exceptional video. Canadian, Australian, New Zealand and other Commonwealth libraries will definitely want this program. I believe that it could also be useful in Women’s Studies, World War II and Twentieth Century History courses in university and college libraries.” --EMRO
