Undauntedby Anne Scott Mcelroy
In the insightful memoir, Undaunted, author/i>
Today's military spouses are understandably upset when they see war reports on television. Faster e-mails from their loved ones have replaced the slower snail mail of the past--but war is still war. Military spouses then and now have to be gutsy and are expected to remain strong no matter what comes their way.
In the insightful memoir, Undaunted, author Anne Scott McElroy, or Scotty, shares her own experiences as a Navy wife. From being the fiancée of a handsome midshipman who graduated from the Naval Academy in 1943, until the day Scotty's husband retired in 1964, Scotty knew it took a special kind of person to cope with Navy life. At times only true love made the trials and tribulations bearable. See how these devoted wives managed long separations from their seagoing husbands, and be part of their joy when happy reunions occur. Share their frustrations with frequent changes of orders, and enjoy stories of friends and the many places they called home. Chuckle at their social errors and feel their sympathy when they receive heartbreaking news from the battlefront.
Undaunted paints a compelling picture of what Navy wives were dealing with while their husbands were off winning World War II.
