An inspiring graphic novel about Jane Kendeigh, a nurse who helped wounded soldiers in combat zones during World War II. During World War II, the United States’ fight against the Japanese on islands in the Pacific was intense and deadly. To help respond to casualties in battle, the U.S. Navy trained 122 nurses to aid wounded soldiers in combat zones. The first nurse to do so was Jane Kendeigh, a twenty-two-year-old woman from Ohio. In March 1945, Kendeigh’s first assignment was to help soldiers fighting in the Battle of Iwo Jima—a fierce battle with many casualties. With bravery and determination, she and other nurses helped thousands of soldiers in that battle—and many more in the Battle of Okinawa. In this full-color graphic novel, discover more about this courageous nurse who braved the battlefield to help U.S. soldiers.
