Description
This book tells a story rarely heard in the annals of the Great War: the experiences of a nurse working close to the Western Front for the whole of World War I. Volunteering for the Queen Alexandra's Imperial Nursing Service in 1914, Edith "Edie" Appleton spent the next five years attached to hospitals and casualty clearing stations in France and Flanders. Her bravery and dedication won her the Military OBE, the Royal Red Cross, and the Belgian Queen Elizabeth medal among others. Her diary details with compassion all the horrors of the "war to end wars," including the first use of poison gas and the butchery of such battles as Ypres, as well as what life was like for nurses and how she spent her time off duty. There are moments of humor amid the tragedy, and even lyrical accounts of the natural beauty that still existed amidst the destruction.
