In World War II, 59,000 women voluntarily risked their lives for their country as U.S. Army nurses. When the war began, some of them had so little idea of what to expect that they packed party dresses; but the reality of service quickly caught up with them, whether they waded through the water in the historic landings on North African and Normandy beaches, or worked around the clock in hospital tents on the Italian front as bombs fell all around them. For more than half a century these women’s experiences remained untold, almost without reference in books, historical societies, or military archives. After years of reasearch and hundreds of hours of interviews, Evelyn M. Monahan and Rosemary Neidel-Greenlee have created a dramatic narrative that at last brings to light the critical role that women played throughout the war. From the North African and Italian Campaigns to the Liberation of France and the Conquest of Germany, U.S. Army nurses rose to the demands of war on the frontlines with grit, humor, and great heroism. A long overdue work of history, And If I Perish is also a powerful tribute to these women and their inspiring legacy. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Hat Amerika eine andere Auffassung vom Krieg als Europa? Eine mogliche Antwort darauf ergibt sich aus der Analyse der nordamerikanischen Kriegsliteratur. Die gesellschaftliche Haltung zur Gewalt entwickelt sich parallel zu ihrer Darstellung in Buchern und Gedichten. Autoren und Leser beeinflussen sich wechselseitig und pflegen und bewahren das kulturelle Erbe Amerikas, das seit den Pilgervatern Gewaltakzeptanz beinhaltet. Die Arbeit untersucht alle Formen der nordamerikanischen Kriegsprosa und -lyrik, auch und gerade sogenannte Popularliteratur. Sie geht chronologisch von Krieg zu Krieg vor. Dabei wird neben den kontemporaren Werken auch auf in spateren Epochen erschienene eingegangen. Extrakapitel werden Comic, Allotopie, Frauen- und Minoritatenliteratur gewidmet. Die Existenz amerikanischer Antikriegsliteratur wird hinterfragt, die Affinitat der Amerikaner zu Heldentum wird beleuchtet. Am Schluss wird eine Aussage zur Unwahrscheinlichkeit der Abkehr der USA von der Neigung zu gewaltsamen Interventionen getroffen."
