The story was interesting and provided historical information. However, the subtitle is somewhat misleading with regard to a story about WWII nurses. The majority of the book was from the perspective and accounts of the men rather than the nurses. They were more of a side story.

    Ponderous

    This book is interesting from an historical point of view, but it is ponderous reading. The author puts in a lot of historical facts along with the backgrounds of the characters and really slows down the pace of the rescue. I intend to finish it, but have done a lot of skimming.
