THE LEAGUE OF WIVES The Untold Story of the Women Who Took on the U.S. Government to Bring Their Husbands Home

by | Read by Heath Hardage Lee

History • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Listeners are transported back to the 1960s by Heath Hardage Lee and her painstaking research. She narrates the incredible true story of a group of military wives whose advocacy gained their husbands' freedom after they had been taken prisoner during the Vietnam War. Lee takes on the role of interpreter as she explains the strict gender roles at play in American society in the late 1960s and early 1970s. We are riveted by details of genteel housewives lobbying Congress in their unrelenting pursuit of justice for their POW husbands. Lee describes each of the key women in the campaign with consistent earnestness. Her fascination with her subjects is infectious. Listeners who are fans of history will find much to admire in this little-known story. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
