"Profoundly moving with moments of humour to lighten the emotional load, this is a wonderful tribute, allowing forgotten voices to be heard once more." (Good Reads) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

This book gives a perfect illustration of the difficult and humerous times during ww2.
My late Grandmother was a nurse during this period in the East End of London at Stratford E 15

Format: Paperback
This is not a typical book in as such as it is divided into chapters and in each chapter there are contributions from a few lines to a page or two from folk who worked in the medical field in the war.
It is a book of deep emotions, from the conditions worked in to the various circumstances .
It is a very well written detailed book of mainly women who were thrown into impossible conditions. These were strong heroic (mainly) women I very much doubt if people today could do what they did in the same circumstances.
The book will appeal to both male and female readers.
It really was a facinating book filled with vivid memories .
Thank you to all who contributed and for sharing such wonderful history .

This was an easy book to dip in and out of. Each story was interesting and different in content and gave a very clear idea of what nursing was like at this time in the 20th century.
