Watched "Carrie's War" on Masterpiece Theatre last night...it was interesting, but got the feeling, for some reason,  that it had been terribly condensed.  I missed the opening credits, and I am wondering if this is based on a book.  Tried running a search with the title, but didn't come up with anything.  Does anyone know if it was based on a book and, if yes, what is the title/author.

I googled Carrie's War and came up with this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrie's_War

There is a novel titled Carrie's War, published 1973. It is by Nina Bawden, and a MT production is based upon it.

And, what on earth was I typing in that I didn't get it?????  With me, who knows???  Anyway, thanks for taking the time to find it for me.  As I said, I wasn't that impressed with the TV show, but something made me want to know more...know whatever they left out (maybe nothing!!!!).  Thanks!!
