Actually a JUV book, it was great tribute to the Army nurses of WWII. I like that it told true stories from the bottom up. Did you know FDR was planning on drafting nurses at one point?

This is a great reference book for anyone wanting to know the complete story on how women got to serve in the military during World War 2. Filled with great photographs, the reader will follow the story of a few women who served in different fields of war and see their true stories and adventures. I really enjoyed this read because I learned so much that I had no clue happened during the war. A great read for any age and level reader.

Great pictures! Cherry's ghost flits through each chapter, but the real stories are so much better and sadder than hers.
Holly loved it too.
Cynthia
Quick, easy overview, actually of WWII, as well as the nurses that served during that war.
