A War Nurse's Diary: Sketches from a Belgian Field Hospital
A World War 1. NurseISBN: 0951565575;
Book DescriptionThe true account of a British woman's experiences while volunteering as a nurse during World War One. Her diary describes in graphic detail the horrors of working on the frontline in a war-torn Belgium. Right in the firing line in the second battle at Ypres, she states 'our hospital soon became a shambles ...our theatre a slaughter house. We started working that day, April 23rd, and we never stopped for about two weeks. Operations continued day and night with two tables occupied all the time...' However despite everything she maintained her sense of humour and desired to find the beauty in things, rejoicing at finding primroses springing up amidst the ruins and revelling in cantering on horseback on the sand dunes in the bright spring sunshine.
