Gives one a real insight of what the soldiers and nursing staff went through in the First World War. As ever, no matter how they were suffering everyone kept 'a stiff upper lip, We certainly have a lot to be grateful for. Lest we forget,

have started to read this very interesting book, which is over 20 years old from being published, though the facts date from the 1900's, to say that the people who gave their time and effort in helping other, is just tremendous.

Ms.Macdonald is a true genius who is able to superbly and exquisitely blend real heart-wrenching human stories with historical facts in a highly educational thought provoking way. This was the first of her books that I read and I went on to read them all ( as well as re-reading this one!). She is able to powerfully evoke images of the lives of the people who lived and fought so valiently. I highly reccommend this and all her books and think they should be on the curriculum of all schools.

Gives a very comprehensive view of the suffering & tragic conditions that our troops had to endure and how the medics & nurses did their utmost to treat the wounded in what was really appalling conditions.

Jolly interesting, I tend to skip over the war blather and just read about the nursing because that's what interests me but it would interest those with an interest in what was going on war wise too :-)

Lyn MacDonald succeeds in making you think again about the First World War in a way which is possibly for the first time. The account of the work they did in the most appalling conditions is awesome.

Very easy to read and very informative. Gives a really good outline to the main events of Britain's participation in WWI whilst focusing on the medical teams. Loving every page of it!

Lyn MacDonald's painstaking research has yielded a wonderful account of the contribution made by so many dedicated young women to caring for wounded soldiers in World War I.

Very interesting stories. The Nurses did not get enough thanks. Someone should write about the Australian Nurses in Greece and Turkey 1915

Had hoped it would have had more about the nurses during WW1 but it concentrated more on the actual war, but still an interesting read
