The Other ANZACs: The Extraordinary Story of our World War 1 Nurses
By the end of the First World War, 45 Australian and New Zealand nurses had died on overseas service and over two hundred had been decorated. Using diaries and letters, Peter Rees takes us into the hospital camps and tent surgeries on the edges of some of the most horrific battlefields in history. Profoundly moving, The Other ANZACs is a story of extraordinary compassion and courage shown by a group of women whose contribution to the ANZAC legend has barely been recognised. Soft cover, photographs, 363 pages.
