Incredible stories of British female doctors and nurses who served abroad during World War I includea nurse who survived a torpedo attack on a ship with serious injuries; caring for the wounded in Malta; nursing the casualties from the battles of Arras and Ypres; a radiologist who created a garden in France; and a VAD nurse in the hospital in Petrograd at the time of Rasputins murder. Extracts from letters and diaries provide a full picture of various first-hand experiences, and honor the often unsung contribution made by those who helped to alleviate suffering. Includes such names as Millicent, Duchess of Sutherland; Grace Ashley Smith; Edith Cavell; Vera Brittain; and Freya Stark.
