Kiwis at war: 1915 - Wounds of war

Diana Menefy SHOP:9781775432746

Mel and her cousin Harriet couldn't bear the thought of brave Kiwi boys being cared for by some bumbling, poorly trained person while the Great War raged on, half a world away.

When these nurses joined the NZ Army Nursing Service and boarded ships headed for Egypt, Anzac Cove and beyond, they had little idea of the horrors they would face, the wounds they would tend to and hearts they would help heal.

The second episode in a gripping series Kiwis at war that tracks each year during the First World War, from 1914 to 1918, each focusing on different aspects of war.


Soft cover, 296 pages.

Recommended reading age: 12+ years.
