So welcome and so long overdue,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Fine Brother: The Life of Captain Flora Sandes (Hardcover)
The story of English nurse Flora Sandes is one that is little known and deserves to be told. Joining the Serbian army during WWI after volunteering to serve as a nurse caring for the wounded, she was the only British woman combat soldier of the Great War. For so many years only very rare copies of her own two-part autobiography and a 1963 biography "The Lovely Sergeant" were the only publications that were sparsely available to tell her compelling story. This new book is such a welcome addition to this relatively obscure story of a true heroine of the First World War. If you don't know who Flora Sandes was, my advice is to get this book and find out. You won't regret it.
