A Nurse at the Front: The First World War Diaries of Sister Edith Appleton (Paperback)Ruth Cowen (editor)
- In stock online
Her diary details with compassion all the horrors of the 'war to end wars', including the first use of poison gas and the terrible cost of battles such as Ypres, but she also records what life was like for nurses and how she spent her time off-duty. There are moments of humour amongst the tragedy, and even lyrical accounts of the natural beauty that still existed amidst all the destruction.
