Elizabeth Foxwell, staff editor of The Catholic Historical Review, was interviewed for an Oct. 9 story on WAMU-FM about her book In Their Own Words: American Women in World War I.
New Book Chronicles Women Of The Great War, 'In Their Own Words'
Date: Oct. 9, 2015
Author: Rebecca Sheir
In 1922, General John Joseph Pershing said about the global war that would become known as World War I: "No matter how patriotic or brave were the men or how self-sacrificing," he said, "the women always went them one better."
And Alexandria-based author and editor Elizabeth Foxwell thinks not nearly enough people know that.
