"An Army in Skirts" is a time machine built from the letters and memories of a young woman who served her country in uniform during World War II. Frances Brown takes us into her world in a straight forward, understated, and often times startling manner. She seems to have taken in stride the daily dangers from bombings in England and France. In contrast, her letters home speak of ordinary but very interesting details of daily life as a WAC, because war information was censored. Together, the two viewpoints make for a facsinating read into our parents' or grandparents' world. In particular, I was so impressed with the morals of her day, even in the midst of war.

It's fun to read other people's mail. This book is good; if they put it out in paperback, I'd consider using it for my modern US class. Read full review
