Summary: "By the end of The Great War, forty-five Australian and New Zealand nurses had died on overseas service and over two hundred had been decorated. They were there for the horrors of Gallipoli and they were there for the savagery the Western Front. Using diaries and letters, Peter Rees takes us into the hospital camps, and the wards and the tent surgeries on the edge of some of the most horrific battlefronts of human history. But he also allows the friendships and loves of these courageous and compassionate women to enrich their experiences, and ours. Profoundly moving, The Other Anzacs is story of extraordinary compassion and courage shown by a group of Australian and New Zealand women whose contribution to the Anzac legend has barely been recognised in our history. Peter Rees has changed our understanding of that history forever."--Publisher description.
