Re: WWII nurses...angel of .....
Greetings from Fort Worth, TX, Donna Patterson !!!
I can't come up with the nurse you are checking on, but in my search for her I came across a very interesting item.
In CITIZEN SOLDIERS, Stephen E. Ambrose, author, devotes an entire chapter to the marvelous duty performed by the nurse corps, starting with their going onto the beaches with the troops at Normandy France, on 10 June 44, 4 days after D-Day, to their loving care and comfort of the wounded from that point to V-E Day, 7 May 45.
He mentions that there were 60,000 nurses in service by war's end, that many were wounded and that seventeen were killed in combat.
He provides a very humane picture of the medic, nurse and physician roles under conditions of combat, including care for the physically wounded and the mentally wounded as well.
Dr. Amrose has such a way with words and such acute insight into the plight of the front line soldier, that this tome reads just like a very good novel, one you don't want to put down.
I have veered from your question:
No, I don't have her name, didn't read the book, or see the movie, but based on what I just quoted from, I will bet that the title was something like "Angel of Mercy".
With my best regards,
