Women in the War Zone
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
It is Christmas day in Zydarow, Poland, 1914 and Sister Violetta Thurston celebrates with roast horse and watery punch. Later, a soldier shows her the religious wooden icon in his pocket that was hit by a bullet and saved his life. This is one of 60 first-hand accounts from the female doctors and nurses serving abroad from 1914 to 1918, which together provide a moving commemoration of women's often overlooked, but vital, contribution to the First World War.
