The participation of women in World War I marked a turning point in the push for women's suffrage. This documentary, based on the book by Elizabeth Cobbs, tells the story of the bi-lingual American women sent to France in 1918 to handle telephone communications crucial to the war effort. They thought they were  part of the US Army Signal Corps, but found out differently upon their return.
