Author's adventures as an American teen in Tripoli in 1950s. A study of contrasts, teens wore jeans, Libyan women were covered in garments called barracans.

An Army Brat in Libya chronicles the life of an American teen In the 1950s in the exotic world of the Middle East. Libya had a king and the U.S. had the strategic  Wheelus Air Force Base. It was a life among the palm trees, camels, donkeys  and Roman ruins,  right on the edge of the beautiful Mediterranean. The U.S. Air Force high school was small but friendly with plenty of activities that didn't include TV or computers. Living in the city across from the Egyptian Embassy  provided its own education, like riots during the Suez Crisis or an outdoor newsreel featuring Nasser of Egypt.
