Libby Feldt treats the reader to a delightful first-person account as a young nurse commissioned in the Army Nurse Corps and deployed in France and Germany during World War II, 1944-1946. We see her commitment begin by taking the oath of office from her father in their Dubuque, Iowa living room, develop at basic training in Colorado, and get honed during the Atlantic Ocean crossing to England. Her unit's orders are to establish the 200th General Hospital in France after its recent liberation from Germany.
We follow Libby and her friends through England, France and Germany and hear of their encounters with the Glenn Miller Band, Bob Hope and General Patton. We celebrate Armistice and mourn the ravages of war. Libby Feldt's story is a tribute to the indefatigable spirit of a young nurse.
