And If I Perish: Frontline U.S. Army Nurses in World War II by Evelyn M. MonahanAfter reading this, my foremost thought was why is this information not taught in elementary or middle school?

Thank you! A laudatory account of the plucky American women—nearly 60, of them—who served in and near combat zones in the Mediterranean and European theaters of war from to Nurses Imprisoned by the Japanese , not reviewed spent a dozen years tracking down and interviewing scores of former frontline army nurses. Their personal recollections are interwoven with historical records to form a narrative that places their experiences into the larger story of the war itself. Twice hospital ships were sunk, hospitals were often bombed or hit by shrapnel, and while only 16 nurses were killed by enemy fire, over more died from accidents or illnesses. As might be expected, the account is replete with stories of the horrific wounds suffered by the GIs the nurses were there to help save, but American soldiers were not their only patients; they gave medical care to French civilians, German POWs, and concentration-camp survivors as well. For some lucky nurses, breaks in duty saw them touring in Shakespeare country, shopping in Paris, and sightseeing on the isle of Capri, and there were dinners with officers, parties, even an occasional wedding.
I love my sister Michele very much. And I love that she is a nurse. I still think she would make an amazing doctor like her biological mom, but I am happy she chose a career that suits her perfectly.
