The story of women in the Armed Services today and in the future. This book is not only a record of the extraordinary scenes from the Gulf War, where moms waved goodbye to their kids - and their husbands - and set out to war, but also the future for women warriors under the "options for change" programme that will change the face of today's army irrevocably. It addresses the problem of sex - the case of the Wren on board ship last year, and the author goes through the Marine Boot Camp, living and working with the female squaddies as they go through the army's equivalent of hell.
