Reviewed by Janet:Have you ever heard of the U.S. Army Signal Corps from World War I? This novel sheds some light on the heroic women who contributed to the Allied victory by waging war from their switchboards, connecting calls relaying orders, sending supplies, and planning military offenses - often translating between English and French so the callers could understand each other. As we travel with Valerie, Marie, and Grace from their homes to training in Chicago and New York City, through England and on to France, we are immersed in this inspiring tale of the brave switchboard soldiers who served to the end. Be sure to read the author's note at the end!
