During the second World War, women worked hard to support the war effort, whether they were at home or in uniform overseas. Some even served on the front lines as nurses, pilots, technicians and more. At the time, President Eisenhower said, ““The contribution of the women of America, whether on the farm or in the factory or in uniform, to D-Day was a sine qua non of the invasion effort.” But what about the women working behind the scenes? What secret roles did they play to guarantee America’s success in the war?
