Dorothea Crewdson (1886-1918), a newly trained Red Cross nurse, left for Le Treport in northern France in April 1915. She was to spend nearly four years in France, working in three hospitals and witnessing some of the worst horror of the First World War, yet somehow maintaining her optimism. Dorothea's diaries from those years are a testimony to her indomitable high spirits and offer a rare, intimate glimpse of the heroic work of First World War nurses.
