Women at War in WWII
Red Cross worker in the front lines
by Jill Pitts Knappenberger

Jill Pitts Knappenberger, born in 1918, at the end of WWI was destined to write about some unusual experiences in her life as a Red Cross worker in 1943-1945. Her adventures in three states, and seven countries including England, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Italy and Austria were remarkable and they dispel the idea that women were not exposed to risks in battle!
Jill Pitts Knappenberger would be inclined to indicate that her writing was only a small treatise done to accomodate a request in 1950 by folks at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, IL that wanted to have a copy of her words that describe her unusual service to the allied cause in WWII.
