Angels in our Midst: WWII American Nurses in the Normandy Invasion and European Theater

A documentary film that gives voice to the memories of American nurses of the D-Day invasion and beyond. What it took for these women to enlist in the Army, what they lived, and how they were changed by the experience are some of the questions explored in the film. These women--thoughtful, funny, courageous, moving--put a human face on war and offer a point of view not always captured in films about that time. I have interviewed women across the U.S. who were nurses during WWII. In my interviews, I have come face to face, in the words of Tom Brokaw, with "the greatest generation." I am convinced that these women's stories should not be lost, that we must capture them while there is still time and, most important, that we must keep their memories alive. These 'angels' give us a glimpse of the reality they confronted in WWII; the heart-wrenching experiences they faced and how they dealt with them. Their stories are a testament to their compassion, pluck and resolve, qualities that, in good times and bad, renew our faith in mankind. In today's world, when our daughters (and sons), our sisters, our women friends, are going forward in an uncertain world--when Wonder Woman recently captured our imagination--it is heartening to listen to these women tell it like it was, with humor and candor. ANGELS IN OUR MIDST may encourage us to don our capes and go forth, inspired by these gutsy and plainspoken women.
