9780807871775: Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women in World War II

During World War II, as the United States called on its citizens to serve in unprecedented numbers, the presence of gay Americans in the armed forces increasingly conflicted with the expanding antihomosexual policies and procedures of the military. In Coming Out Under Fire, Allan Berube examines in depth and detail these social and political confrontation--not as a story of how the military victimized homosexuals, but as a story of how a dynamic power relationship developed between gay citizens and their government, transforming them both. Drawing on GIs' wartime letters, extensive interviews with gay veterans, and declassified military documents, Berube thoughtfully constructs a startling history of the two wars gay military men and women fough--one for America and another as homosexuals within the military.

Berube's book, the inspiration for the 1995 Peabody Award-winning documentary film of the same name, has become a classic since it was published in 1990, just three years prior to the controversial "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which has continued to serve as an uneasy compromise between gays and the military. With a new foreword by historians John D'Emilio and Estelle B. Freedman, this book remains a valuable contribution to the history of World War II, as well as to the ongoing debate regarding the role of gays in the U.S. military.

Book Description:

"Both a classic in the field and still the definitive work on its subject. Nothing surpasses it."--Regina Kunzel, author of Criminal Intimacy

From the Inside Flap:

Drawing on GIs' wartime letters, extensive interviews with gay veterans, and declassified military documents, Berube constructs a startling history of the two wars gay military men and women fought--one for America and the other for their own survival as homosexuals within the military. This book has become a classic since it was published in 1990 and remains a valuable contribution to the history of World War II, at home and abroad, as well as to the ongoing debate regarding the role of gays in the U.S. military.
