Drawing upon evidence from archives from across the world, Veiled Warriors gives a compelling account of nurses' wartime experiences and a clear appraisal of their work and its contribution to the allied cause between 1914 and 1918, on both the Western and Eastern fronts.
Nurses were an integral component of the allied military machine, putting their own lives at risk in field hospitals, close to the front line, on board hospital ships and in base hospitals. As working women allied nurses were also fighting to gain recognition for their profession and political rights for their sex.
Military nursing helped win the war and also created a powerful voice for women in the post world war.
