Product Overview

Elizabeth Richardson was a Red Cross volunteer who worked as a Clubmobile hostessduring World War II. Handing out free doughnuts, coffee, cigarettes, and gum to American soldiers inEngland and France, she and her colleagues provided a touch of home?American girls with whomthe boys could talk, flirt, dance, and perhaps find companionship. Usually the job was nothazardous?except when V-1 and V-2 rockets rained down on London?but it requiredboth physical endurance and the skills of a trained counselor. Liz Richardson is a witty writer andastute observer. Her letters and diaries reveal an intelligent, independent, and personable womanwith a voice that rings true. With commentary by historian James H. Madison, this book is anexceptional window into a past that is all too quickly fading from memory.
