3.0 out of 5 stars Don't get your hopes up
Found diary interesting at the start and hoped it would pick up as it went along, got the feeling it was all a much of a muchness.
Not a bad read but I was hoping for a tad more.

4.0 out of 5 stars War Diaries., 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just what it says on the cover, this is not fiction but actual extracts from a nurses diary kept during the first world war. Pretty harrowing stuff but nicely balanced with a lot of general observations about her location and her off duty jaunts into the countryside.

This review is from: A Nurse at the Front: The First World War Diaries of Sister Edith Appleton (Paperback)
This book should be compulsory reading for all nurses and all studying WW1 at college. Whilst this could be a gruesome subject it was written in such a gentle but honest way.

Detailed diary of a nursing sister in the first world war, it includes details on every day life both as a nurse and a woman. She is a woman of strength comparison who works hard but also explore her local environment, this book/diary leaves no one in any doubts about the horror of war, but also the healing a lovely place can bring about.
