Memories of A Military Brat

In her book «War Ready. In My Father's Shadow», Darst beautifully conjoins the events encompassing World War II as well as the Cold War with the help of an authentic narrative surrounding the life of a typical American military family. She reveals a new perspective on the United States military, which was seen as an occupying and protecting force for a long time in Germany in particular, and redirects our attention to the “social costs” and strains put onto soldiers’ families, the so-called military dependents.
