Summary
From the bombed-out wards of the Blitz to the harsh conditions of army field hospitals, and from the nurses' pioneering work in the treatment of burns to the challenges of delivering a baby in a blackout, these courageous individuals relate with candour, wit and compassion their memories of the war. The members of this sisterhood found reserves of inner strength and made friendships that carried them through episodes of unrelieved horror. For many, wartime nursing was a life-changing experience and, in telling their vivid, poignant and riveting stories, 'Sisters' captures their pride, grief and joy. It is a fitting tribute to their spirit and bravery
