Ruth Cowen presents the diaries of Sister Edith Appleton, a nurse on the frontline during the First World War who, incredibly, served in France for the whole of the conflict.
Her diary details with compassion the horrors of the war, including the first use of poison gas and the terrible human cost of battles as well as recording what life was life for nurses and how her off-duty time was spent. This book pinpoints moments of humour amongst the tragedies and beautifully describes the Edith's bravery and dedication which in turn won her the Military OBE, the Royal Red Cross and the Belgian Queen Elizabeth medal among others.
