Bands of Sisters, Women Military Bands in WWII, tells the tale of a remarkable period in the history of American women. The novelty of these bands drew enough spectators for the bands to be placed on tour, raising money for the war and boosting morale. The women, once discharged at the war’s end, refused to fade into post-war domesticity. Instead, the strong bond fostered by youthful enthusiasm and the rare opportunity to serve in the military, lasted 60 years. Based on interviews with over 70 surviving band members Dr. Sullivan will take you on a journey discovering the history of these bands.
