Behind the Scenes

“We recognized early on that the Iraq war marked an historic shift for women. Female soldiers on the ground in Iraq were participating in the extremes of war to an unprecedented extent. But missing from the mainstream press were the in-depth stories that exemplified the history-making nature of their experiences.”

—Co-directors Meg McLagan and Daria Sommers
