Description

Dancing on the Waves is more than an unusual account of one woman in uniform. Behind the light-hearted approach is the author's interest in the changing roles and attitudes of women, which the opportunities of war created. "Never at sea" was the motto of the WRNS, but this soon became outdated, for the Wrens were required to handle the coded signals received on board the "Monsters," the peace-time liners that brought over the American Forces for the build-up to D-Day. She also worked at Submarine Headquarters and attended the Yalta conference. She writes entertainingly about the details that lie behind the great events.show more
