Description by OLDIES.com:
Each interview affords the reader a "mini-documentary" of the time period when that individual first came into contact with the actress. From the front lines of battle to concert halls, from film studios to Dietrich's kitchen, we see her in many environments and gain a perspective on her character, political views, and taste for nonconformity. In stories recounted by American GI's, studio heads, Nazi hunters, and fellow entertainers she publicly decries Nazism, helps a military journalist's career, sings a German lullaby for an Israeli audience, and cooks a steak for a young songwriter. Many photos are included to bring the interviews to life.
A Woman at War makes for not only an in-depth experience of Dietrich's turbulent life and times but also for a fascinating journey into the lives of those whom she encountered along the way, many in the midst of world conflict, love affairs, and political intrigue.
