Following the Drum
The Lives of Army Wives and Daughters, Past and PresentBook - 2005
FOLLOWING THE DRUM tells the stories of the women who followed their men around the world, sometimes onto the: battlefield itself, and went on to become brave, headstrong and positively warlike. Army wives have 'followed the drum' to the cholera-ridden valleys of the Crimea, the sweltering plains of the Indian Mutiny, the trecherous Burmese jungle and into the last Gulf War. Drawing on letters, journals and interviews, FOLLOWING THE DRUM pays tribute to the remarkable women who triumphed amidst the blood, battles and brawls.
