Such an interesting and encompassing account of the activities of the Army Nurse Corps in World War II, from North Africa all the way to Berlin, complete with pieces of interviews and archive photographs.
Cover photo shows nurses of the 93rd Evacuation Hospital arrive at their hospital site at Paestum, Italy, in September 1943

A story of love, rebellion, loyalty and uncertainty–and with it, the greater revelation that is India‘s Second World War. Farthest Field narrates India‘s war, in which the largest volunteer army in history fought for the British Empire, even as its countrymen fought to be free of it. It carries us from Madras to Peshawar, Egypt to Burma – unfolding the saga of a young family amazed by their swiftly changing world, and swept up in its violence.

I think I picked this up at the wrong time? It didn‘t wow me like I expected it would and didn‘t seem to add much to the genre of WWII fiction. #tbrread #wintergames #merryreaders

AmyK1 I felt the same way about it. It was kind of...weird 🤷‍♀️ 2d

Holiday tradition with my mom we pick a book we love and make a little wreath out of the pages and save them. This year was her all time favorite pride and prejudice for the second year in a row. Lol

This was an interesting survival story written for younger readers, but somehow it was just not as compelling to me as some others that I‘ve read. It has seemed to be a bit easier of a sell to some middle school students, so I‘m hoping I can use it to introduce them to other similar stories as well.

This is a very informative read on all of the activities of the cryptographers of Bletchley Park. I hadn‘t previously read much about Colossus or Heath Robinson (both even more advanced predecessors of modern computers than the famous bombes) so I really loved that section.
