Our Vietnam nurses

Annabelle Brayley SHOP:9780143797029

Being a nurse requires a cool head, a steady hand and an open heart. But if you’re working in a war zone, the challenges are much harder. When Australia joined the Vietnam War, civilian and military nurses were there to save lives and comfort the wounded. This collection of compelling and moving stories show a side to the Vietnam War that has received little recognition but played an important part in shaping Australia’s presence in the war. From flying with critically wounded Australian soldiers out of turbulent war zones, to being held at gunpoint, the compassion, courage and grace under fire in Our Vietnam nurses will inspire and astound.

Soft cover, 320 pages.
