From Belfast to Berlin, this captivating diary traces one Dublin woman's vivid depiction of her life as a soldier. The immediacy and adventure of army life, the excitement of wartime Europe, poignant letters from soldier boyfriends who would never return from battle. Amidst all of this, the fun and friendship of Romie and her companions - a happy-go-lucky gang of young women embarking upon life in a man's world. Army dances packed with eager GIs: war-weary colonels and majors who softened to chat with the young Irishwoman driving them across battle-scarred Europe: 'displaced persons' and concentration camp victims trekking for hundreds of miles to find their former homes... Romie Lambkin's compelling diary tells a singular story. [WorldCat]
