THROUGH THE FIRE AND FURY OF WORLD WAR II, THEY RISKED THEIR HEARTS AND THEIR LIVES ... On a hot July day in 1942, at a military base in Iowa, their friendship began: wisecracking, softhearted Bunny; Page, the ambitious Army brat; naive, tormented Jill: elegant, sensual Elisabeth. Trading silk for khakis, they joined the U.S. Army as the first women officers-the WACs. From bomb-blasted England to Nazi France, from Italy to the Pacific, they plunged into the terror and splendor of war ... discovering the pride of command," the tragedy of sudden death, the passionate, deep loves that held a tender hope for tomorrow. Filled with all the ardor and gallantry of World War II. LOVE AND GLORY is the once-in-a-lifetime story of four American women who chose to serve their country-and change their destinies forever.
