Product description

From the Back Cover

Mary Lee Settle volunteered for service in the women's auxiliary arm of the Royal Air Force in 1942. She was a lone young American in a barracks full of British women. All the Brave Promises is her recollection and evocation of those war years. From her ignominious treatment at the hands of rowdy barracks mates to her friendship with young RAF pilots and her tracking of Allied planes through night fog and blackout, Settle successfully re-creates the heightened sense of danger that pervaded wartime Britain, the immobilizing fear she dealt with on a daily basis, the heady enthusiasm that sometimes broke the tense atmosphere, and the unbridgeable gulf that divided officers from the enlisted ranks. With a mixture of passionate honesty and earthy humor, this masterful, award-winning writer crafts a memoir that is as much a tribute to the generation that fought World War II as a moving account of one woman's extraordinary wartime experience.
