It's 1941 and Frenchy is finishing her training as a U.S. Army nurse prior to setting sail for North Africa. Amid the swirling sands and exotic bazaars, follow the escapades of Frenchy and her friend Ellen as they experience the rigors of war while serving with the U.S. Army Medical Corps. From military exercises to marriage proposals, Frenchy's world expands as she follows her childhood dream of serving her country as a nurse. This story is based on the real-life experiences of Frances Miernicke Plenert, a surgical nurse whose adventures took her from Minnesota to Arkansas to North Africa and eventually to Italy, France, and Germany. Join Frenchy on the first part of her war-time journey through North Africa as she encounters the British Army Medical Corps, German prisoners, espionage, and a handsome Allied tank gunner.
