By the end of the Great War, forty-five Australian and New Zealand nurses had died on overseas service and over two hundred had been decorated. These were the women who left for war looking for adventure and romance but were soon confronted with challenges for which their civilian lives could never have prepared them. Their strength and dignity were remarkable.

Using diaries and letters, Peter Rees takes us into the hospital camps and the wards and the tent surgeries on the edge of some of the most horrific battlefronts of human history. But he also allows the friendships and loves of these courageous and compassionate women to enrich their experiences, and ours.

Profoundly moving, Anzac Girls is a story of extraordinary courage and humanity shown by a group of women whose contribution to the Anzac legend has barely been recognised. Peter Rees has changed that understanding forever.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Compelling. * The Australian *
Peter Rees has produced an inspiring account of the nurses' experiences using the diaries and letters of many of these women. Through the use of these documents, he is able to describe quite intimately the effect that war had on the nurses, both personally and professionally. * Australian Defence Magazine *
Highly evocative and moving * Sydney Morning Herald *
