Captures the brave and moving story of the New Zealand women who nursed overseas in the South African War, World War I, the Spanish Civil War and the various theatres of World War II. They enlisted for much the same reasons as their male counterparts - duty, patriotism, adventure - and they endured many of the same dangers and discomforts. But their experience was very different from that of the men they nursed. Drawing on diaries, letters, interviews and a range of other sources, this book focuses on their personal experiences and memories, to give a picture of the courage, adaptability, practicality, humour and strength of these remarkable women.
