View Full Description

Sitting in the piano bar at the Top of the Mark restaurant in San Francisco, Sally Hitchcock Pullman is yanked back by the music to memories of World War II in the Southwest Pacific. Her letters to her Mom and Dad bring us a poignant account of her pride in nursing, and her huge contribution to the welfare of more than 27,000 patients in the field. Her collection is humorously punctuated by hand-drawn sketches of the beauties and perils of Army life in New Guinea and the Philippines.
