Her collection of letters is the perfect insight into the horrors of war. As a fellow nurse, I could identify with her frustration, though I could not begin to appreciate the exhausting pace and privation she endured.

I am so pleased that this was not edited to death by some slick publisher. The daily grind, the sameness of her terrible existence, the constant exhaustion and fear and anxiety is perfectly captured in the often mundane detail. Though she did not dwell on such things, the humiliation and prejudice she suffered by being an intelligent, free-thinking, independent and beautiful woman was evident, and shame on those who did not appreciate her.

There is a love story here as well. The complete adoration she enjoyed by so many fellow soldiers and patients is evidence that June Wandrey was, as so many nurses in war, more than an able caregiver.

She reminded those who touched her life the meaning of love in a place where such a concept is often forced into the furthest recesses of the mind. This has been one of the most entertaining and enlightening books I've read in a long time. I wish I could have known her. As a former soldier, I love reading personal accounts of warriors. A really great read!

This wonderful book was first published in , and since then the author, June Wandrey, like so many others of the "Greatest Generation" has passed on in The book had gone out of print - I got mine second hand it looks like an autographed copy. The episode in Sicily where the young soldier asks June how he's doing just before he dies she kisses his forehead and tells him that he's doing just fine , the part where she asks "God where are you?

The book has only a few details about June Wandrey's work as a surgical nurse in what would now be termed a forward surgical team, working close to the battlefield.

Entire periods of what must have been non-stop surgery on fresh combat casualties are passed over with only brief comments. She mentions doctors and surgeons only a few times this is the flip side of stories like "MASH", told from the point of view of the surgeons and ignoring the nurses and there are virtually no descriptions of any of the surgeries.

To a weary surgical nurse, they must have all blurred together after a while. Many things stand out in this book besides the included episodes. It was a dangerous job, being so close to the battlefield - German planes and artillery would occasionally attack their camps.

The carefree sense of death-defying adventure with June hitchhiking rides across Europe, bouncing along in open top jeeps on bad roads no seatbelts, high potential for rollovers , flying on rickety planes that sometimes barely landed in one piece, yes, when you are that age, it seems like nothing can kill you.

There was the steady dose of what we would instantly recognize today as sexual harassment June mentions kicking more than one officer in the shins. The malnutrition and daily monotony of C-rations. Wandrey loudly voices her Republican politics, frequently slamming FDR describing him as a "warmonger" , only politely commenting on FDR's death, and foreshadowing the Cold War with her comments about the Soviets being allowed to enter Berlin. And yet, in spite of her clear distaste for the war, she chose to serve, and served with distinction, being given a Bronze medal for refusing to abandon her patient during an operation, when the Germans began shelling their position.

June Wandrey endured malaria, hepatitis, a tooth abscess, and physical injuries to take on a job that she did not have to do. It's too bad the book is out of print. The book goes into so much more detail however. Her story, and that of other veterans, is one that should be taught in our high schools. American society has changed so much, it seems like a different world now from the time of June Wandrey. I hope we never forget. Jeannie Walker Award-Winning Author. Surgical nurses during World War Two were allocated one helmet of water a day for their personal hygiene.

They suffered great hardships but performed their duty with the best of their ability. I don't think they have been given enough credit for their dedication. Reading June Wandrey's account made me realize what a wonderful, dedicated bunch of women we had as nurses during World War Two. Her remarkable writing inspired me to seek out more stories about these unselfish and astonishing young women. I enjoyed every page. Loved the real time diary type journalistic presentation.
