The Doughnut Sweethearts: The Diary of Alice McAllister during World War I

  • Description

    By Alice McAllister (Author) –  Paperback – December 1, 2012 

    This booklet is the original journal of one doughnut girl, Alice McAllister, who joined the 1st Division of the American Expeditionary Forces and was sworn into the U.S. Army as a private—the only way she could volunteer on the front lines of World War I. With guitars in hand, Alice and her sister Violet McAllister performed for the troops, set broken bones and immunized for tetanus, but they became known for a simple luxury while at war, the doughnut.
