This review is from: Chavasse, Double VC (Paperback)
Beyond heroic Chavasse served his fellow man more than himself. Sadly it cost him his life. A deeply religious man he saw the good in all and tried to preserve life when little hope was left. In an effort to rescue the wounded he put his own life on the line on many occasions. When only 50 metres from the German lines, when they could have killed him and his faithful stretcher bearers, they enemy stayed their fire astonished at his bravery. An amazing man. Ann Clayton has written a masterpiece sensitively describing Chavasse's life in a masterful and compelling way. A must read.
