"Piercy follows the lives of ten ordinary people - six women and four men - as they move through the dizzying atmosphere of the world's wartime capitals: the impulsive couplings and bittersweet partings, the stultifying deprivations and the once-in-a-lifetime chances. Most of all, she shows how World War II became a crucible, where unformed young people were hardened into men and women, charged with saving civilization as no generation had before or has since."
