Abstract

Train to Nowhere is a war memoir seen through the sardonic eyes of Anita Leslie, who joined the Mechanized Transport Corps as a fully trained mechanic and ambulance driver during WWII, serving in Libya, Syria, Palestine, Italy, France and Germany. Ahead of her time, Anita bemoans "first-rate women subordinate to second-rate men", and, as the British Army forbade women from serving at the front, joined the Free French Forces in order to do what she felt was her duty.
