Journey Among Warriors [Eve Curie]. Eve Curie was the daughter of Marie and Pierre Curie, the discoverers of radium and Nobel Prize winners. As a news correspondent, her journey begins as the world is mired in war for just over two years, during which the United States enters after Pearl Harbor. This comes as the European powers are establishing their military power through Africa, the Middle East, Russia, and the Far East. German forces are meeting stiff resistance in Russia and North Africa, though the Japanese are pushing through South Asia, threatening India. Curie writes of the patriotism of the Free French, the exiled Poles, the British colonial hierarchy, the Russian Red Army, and the Chinese, both leadership and rank and file.
