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 these social and political confrontations – 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 fought – one for America and another as homosexuals within the military.
