Review by  David M. Glantz, Editor, The Journal of Slavic Military Studies, March 1999."The genuine value of these books and the interest they are bound to generate among specialists and general readers alike argue for their wider dissemination. The books should be made available to the wider audience they so richly deserve." David M. Glantz, Editor, The Journal of Slavic Military Studies, March 1999.
Review by Leslie Blanchard, Editor, A Writers' Choice Literary Journal, April 1999."The topic has been neglected by historians in the West, and Cottam's books have done much to rectify the situation. They are a must read." Leslie Blanchard, Editor, A Writers' Choice Literary Journal, April 1999.
Review by John Eckel."Professor Cottam has written a great book that will interest readers of both Soviet and military history as well as those seeking a historical perspective on the current debate regarding women in combat. She has also put together three other books–both first and third person accounts of Soviet women in wartime. If you have even a slight interest in the subject, Women in War and Resistance is a must.” John Eckel.
