Was surprised and pleased to learn about these ladies' role in the war effort but the storytelling was somewhat dull and tedious.

True Patriotic Ladies - Thank You!

By "Rosie" in training

from Denver, CO

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Top Secret Rosies: The Female Computers of WWII DVD:

I am crushed and disappointed that these ladies didn't receive the well deserved recognition they had earned during the pinnacles of their careers, but also that I didn't learn this in elementary school when I was learning about Pearl Harbor & Hiroshima, in the 80s. This is an extremely important part of our history, The United States of America, and for pioneering women. (My great aunts were WAVES.) They are true patriotic LADIES because they remained true to their classified work, yet never sought recognition. Today we lack the class that all those courageous spirits had back then. How can we step it up? What else don't we know?

Things hinted at over the years are finally brought to life by this documentary. Makes you wonder what things the mass media are suppressing these days.
