Veiled Warriors

Allied Nurses of the First World War

Christine E. Hallett

  • The real story of allied nursing in the First World War
  • A compelling account of nurses' wartime experiences and their vital contribution to the allied cause
  • Challenges the popular mythology of nurses as 'romantic heroines' to reveal the more complex and absorbing story that lies beneath
  • Encompasses the experiences of British, Dominion, French, Russian, and American nurses
  • Covers both Eastern and Western Fronts, as well as the Eastern Mediterranean theatre of war
  • Highlights the twofold nature of the nurses' battle: to win both the war itself and a more powerful voice for women in the post-war world
