We know the story of the ANZACs-but what about the nurses who travelled with them to the front and cared for the injured and the dying? They were there for Gallipoli and the horror of the Western Front. These were women whose civilian lives could never have prepared them for the appalling conditions that lay ahead. Using diaries, letters and other primary material, Peter Rees tells the gallant story of Australian and New Zealand nurses in the Great War, in their own words.
