Women In The War Zone : Hospital Service in the First World War
The nurses who served on the frontline during the First World War were often only yards away from the frontline, in an environment a world away from the comfort of home. These ministering angels were symbols of hope to the men under their care. In Women in the War Zone, Anne Powell has selected extracts from first-hand accounts of the experiences of those women who served abroad, from Petrograd to Basra, Antwerp to the Dardanelles, Russia and Romania, the Somme, Ypres and Arras.
Their stories are of extraordinary courage and compassion. Featuring detailed biographies of all female medical personnel, this book honours the often unsung contribution they made to alleviating the suffering of the First World War.
