Brave Young Americans, We Love You (Paperback)
Raymonde Delaitre’s diary, written during the years 1943 to 1945, gives us an intimate look inside the mind of a young woman living in France under the German occupation. The war is a constant backdrop to her coming of age; at times very close and dangerous, other times, less so as her personal story takes the stage. Her life fluctuates between ordinary daily events and poignant events such as being liberated by the Allied troops or watching a newborn lose his battle for life. But the diary is overwhelmingly about love, love lost, love found, and choosing the bitter path of reason.
