About the Book

This second volume of accounts by nurses who served with U.S. forces in Vietnam presents recollections of 17 women who cared for American casualties. They faced overwhelming trauma, conflicting emotions and isolation while caring for wounded at frontline hospitals, aboard ships and in medical centers. Representing the army and navy, their experiences of struggle, friendship and love formed their professional and personal lives.
