A must read!
Sandes was clearly a unique individual whose story deserves to be heard and who celebrates many other heroic women without whom much more suffering would have been endured. Sandes herself is in thrall to the silent bravery of the men she worked alongside and their gallantry in their treatment of her despite their terrible suffering; regarding her as an equal - at a time when women were not.
Flora Sandes gave her life and energies to providing support for the men she admired yet never loses her appetite for fun and adventure. A complex person embracing a complex nightmare, she shines a light on humanity with all its foibles. Read it and learn!
Such an unusual story about a woman who craved adventure. Interesting to hear a story about the war from a totally different angle. She then donned her Serbian uniform once again to find action in the second world war then in her 60's and after that her family found her life style difficult to handle once she had to come back to Blighty. Well worth a read.
