Women who crave true-to-life heroic models, and the men who love such women, will both enjoy Helmets and Lipstick. It is the account first published in 1944 of Second Lieutenant Ruth Haskell. Her service in the Army Nurse Corps during World War Two was exemplary, the stuff of legends. She faced heavy enemy fire during during the Operation Torch invasion of North Africa in late 1942. Her passionate dedication to her work and her droll humor illuminate this fascinating book.
