Annotation Frances Slanger was a Jewish fruit-peddler's daughter who survived a chilling childhood in World War I--torn Poland and immigrated to America at age 7. Inspired by memories of her bitter past and a Nazi-threatened future, she defied her parents' wishes by becoming a nurse and joining the military. She splashed ashore with the first nurses to hit the Normandy Beach in June 1944. She was the first American nurse to die in Europe after the landings at Normandy. This is the story of her too brief life. Some violence and some strong language.
