New book tells the story of 5 Michigan nurses and medics caught behind Nazi lines in WWII
These were medics and nurses who signed up to travel and see the world and instead saw a side of life and humanity most of us could never imagine. That is because Lineberry tells the complete and holistic version of this rescue mission, and does not edit out the presence and effect of the thirteen nurses involved in the plane-crash.
I found myself completely engrossed in their saga, and rode an emotional roller coaster as their journey unfolded. From a failed rescue attempt, to seemingly dangerous Italian soldiers shadowing the group, to midnight escapes, Lineberry does a fantastic job of putting the reader in the middle of what can only be described as a personal nightmare.

We learn that tensions ran high the longer it took to find safety, and there was much infighting involving the women. We learn that it was better to stick close to the women when in a village, because they received more attention and food.

And we learn that when President Roosevelt was told that the plane crash involved thirteen nurses, he requested daily updates on the rescue mission. All in all, this is a book about War that narrates how a stranded party escaped enemy territory with the help of Albanians who risked their own lives and American and British secret services. Lineberry makes the right choices on when to saturate the book with detail and when to let narrative take over. Military history is often told through the lens of the soldier and the battlefield.
Thank you for a short concise review.
