An Army in Skirts: The World War II Letters of Frances DeBra
By Frances DeBra Brown

More than 150,000 women served in the Women's Army Corps in World War II and more than 7,600 served in the European Theater of Operations. One of these women was Frances DeBra Brown from Danville, Indiana, who worked as a draftsman at American headquarters in London and Paris. An Army in Skirts: The World War II Letters of Frances DeBra contains the letters that Frances wrote to her family and letters she received. The letters vividly detail her World War II service, beginning with basic training at Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia. She had assignments in Marianna, Florida, London, and Paris. While in Paris she attended classes at the École des Beaux-Arts and received a marriage proposal.
