    It's the nature of things that the women who had to endure the Great Depression and then WW2 were forced to become strong. After the war, as many of them had too many babies in too short a period of time, their daughters were pressed into service at an early age. This "Baby Boomer" generation also was known for it's leadership skills. Two successive generations of strong, independent women were really the root of today's "Me Too" movement. If we were good enough to build bombers in WW2, we are good enough not to be defined by gender specific roles.

    On my Father's side was his Great Aunt Martha, who during WWI rolled bandages and drove ambulances in France. Some how women are forgotten, when in reality, though I hate to say it, men couldn't have their Wars if it weren't for the women filling in to keep their families and communities together. Now that more and more sisters are gaining seats in the Government, hopefully there will be less and less Wars.

Also Violette Szabo was a French/British Special Operations Executive (SOE) agent. there stories should be told. Violette Szabo story was told in a movie.

      Your right about the famine in Bengal it is one of the most shocking and forgotten disasters of the 2nd world war . Over 3 million Indians died but it’s wasn’t intentional unlike the Nazi final solution .

    Why don't you news people start admitting how dumb, stupid and ignorant Trump is not even knowing the basic of this country laws. Start saying before you read Trumps tweets that are lies because you fact checked them before you read them. The news is helping Trump spread his lies by not saying they are lies before they read his tweets. This is not 2016 where you were caught flat foot. Now you know so act with responsibility.

      @dan mac Species received a wide theatrical release on July 7, 1995. Its opening weekend was $17.1 million, MGM's biggest opening at the time and second in the box office ranking behind Apollo 13. Budgeted at $35 million, the film earned a total of $113 million worldwide ($186 million adjusted for inflation), including $60 million in the United States. Audiences polled by CinemaScore during opening weekend gave the film an average grade of "B-" on a scale ranging from A+ to F. MGM Home Entertainment released the film on DVD in March 1997, which contains a booklet with trivia and production notes, and on VHS in August 1999. In July 2006, MGM released it on Blu-ray, whose supplements includes several featurettes as well as two audio commentary tracks: one by director Roger Donaldson, Natasha Henstridge and Michael Madsen, and another from Donaldson, cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak, make-up effects creator Steve Johnson, visual effects supervisor Richard Edlund and producer Frank Mancuso Jr. In July 2017, Scream Factory released a collector's edition Blu-ray, issued with a concoction of new and archival bonus contents which have been ported over from original DVD and Blu-ray versions. On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film received an approval rating of 44% based on 63 reviews, with an average rating of 5.1/10 and a critical consensus which reads "Species shows flashes of the potential to blend exploitation and sci-fi horror in ingenious ways, but is ultimately mainly interested in flashing star Natasha Henstridge's skin". On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 49 out of 100 based on 25 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews". Roger Ebert gave it 2 out of 4 stars, criticizing the film's plot and overall lack of intelligence. Cristine James from Boxoffice magazine gave the film 2 out of 5 stars, describing it as "'Alien' meets 'V' meets 'Splash' meets 'Playboy's Erotic Fantasies: Forbidden Liaisons,' diluted into a diffuse, misdirected bore." James Berardinelligave the film 2½ out

    So moving, so amazing.. To think that 3 women won world war 2... After 75 years. This book, this information just happens to come with "meToo" *"Who knew?"* All the men on that Normandy beach. All the American, British, French, & other allied men, in deep cover resistances organisations. as specialists, spy's, support. The MILLIONS of men fighting.... But no, these 3 women were the real (secret) heroes. (l know lets jump on the cash cow, and write a book about them, and make a lotta money) in this new SJW/Metoo bandwagon era. Little known fact, they were also the same three women who dug all those trenches in WW1... *Facepalm.*

      @dan mac .... in all seriousness: this book probably took several years to write, and probably was just a mere faint idea way before #Metoo ( or at least that's the path of many other documentary-type books...that they take many years to complete ). This is an interesting topic: I heard an interview about the new movie "Yesterday". Well, there's a guy who took 4+ years to write a fictional book (he's not connected with the movie), and it's actually for sale online, and he doesn't have a big following. Anyway, his book is about a young man who does exactly what the Yesterday character does: get famous for singing Beatles' songs. The point of the conversation was that there have been times in history where things were developed by two different people, who didn't know one another, and they created virtually the same things. And during this interview, several other examples like this were described. How does this happen? No one has an answer.

      @Claudy TheArtist I've no idea who considered them ALL British, Claudy, but they were wrong. They ALL spoke French, two were French and one was British! The British deployed and promoted Portuguese, Spanish and Belgian citizens, but that didn't make them British! As for the "international reputation of American women", reports are wildly varied, often exaggerated, and occasionally slanderous.

      @greg hill You're mostly right except they were considered British even though two spoke French... All three were employed by American Special Operations... So first noting it was the Americans who deployed these women into combat and promoted them into leadership roles... Only Native Born American Indians are our only true Americans all other women and men in the USA are immigrants or their descendants... So when I say we are proud of our independent strong American Women, it still stands and is true as you must know the reputation of American Women internationally... I did go back a listen to the segment again and in the interview the author never said where the two surviving women lived after the War... So
