V for Victory: Women at War details women's essential contributions to the national war effort during World War II. Original newsreel stories illustrate the period's most momentous events and highlight the era's prominent personalities. World War II changed life forever for the American woman, who now began to fill traditional male roles and earn new independence. From the home front and factories to the battle fields, the film examines women's sacrifices as well as their demonstrations of competency at this critical turning point in our country's history. ~ Sally Barber, Rovi
