Young, confident and energetic, Lieutenant Wandrey climbed the gangplank of the SS Santa Elena bound for the battlefields of North Africa, Sicily, Italy, France and Germany. From her diary, notes and letters, live with her the life of a surgical nurse in a Field Hospital, often operating within the sound of gunfire. Feel with her the despair and infinite sadness as she cares for and comforts the wounded soldiers. Empathize with her agonized cry from the horrors of Allach and Dachau, "Where are you God?"
June Wandrey earned eight major battle stars for campaigns in Anzio, Tunisia, Sicily, Naples-Foggia, Rome-Arno, Southern France, Rhineland and Central Europe.
