Format: Paperback
This is a very interesting account of a Red Cross Nurse's experiences during World War One. Although they are 'letters', they read just like an account of the action.
Certainly Miss Warner's obvious love for the French troops in the trenches or the 'Poilus' as she calls them, shines through every page.
I have read quite a few nurse war books, but I found this to be quite an eye opener, as I had not realised some of the nurses worked quite so hard as they did. Well recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Human side of war 1 Sept. 2011
By Helen Elise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
S.L. Wigle "HelenElise" (L.A., CA)

Agnes Warner, a Red Cross Canadian nurse on the French front in World War I, shared her experiences in letters she wrote to her close circle of friends and relatives. Not written for publication, the letters were genuine and descriptive. Also, they were eye-witness reports that put the reader at the front with Warner.

I could see the field hospital's many huts and sheds, the sky glowing with flashes from shells, the air battle between the German and French aeroplanes. I could hear the guns roaring like thunder and feel the earth shaking from the bombardments.

From morning until night the nurses and doctors worked to save the lives of men with horrible injuries from trench warfare. Warner and the other medical personnel were as courageous as their patients. I highly recommend this small book because it has big messages about the human side of war.
