Summary
1939: Mary Mulry was eighteen years old when she arrived in London from Ireland to begin training as a nurse. She had hoped for an adventure and a new start; she could not have predicted what the next seven years would bring. In this extraordinary diary Mary recorded in intimate detail her experiences as a nurse on the Home Front and later working on the frontline in Europe. In Normandy, she tended to Allied soldiers and German prisoners of war. In war-torn Belgium, she witnessed harrowing casualties from the Battle of Arnhem. Yet, romance, glamour and adventure were never far away for Mary
