Abstract

"Today only one-third of US uniformed women believe that the military's primary purpose is to fight wars. Nowhere in the US military do women meet the same physical standards as men - not in the military academies, not in basic training, and certainly not in the field. Applying common sense, the history of men under arms, and a quarter-century's worth of research on women in the military, Brian Mitchell reveals how 'equal opportunity' has been allowed to trump military readiness and national security. Women in the Military is an illuminating - and frightening - look at our nation's armed services." This statement by the publisher on the 1998 pubilication by Brian Mitchell,  who strongly argued in the book against the intergration of women in the US military, has been proofen wrong  by the historic development in the last two decades.
