Sister Soldiers of the Great War

The Nurses of the Canadian Army Medical Corps

Book - 2016
Rate this:
In Sister Soldiers of the Great War, award-winning author Cynthia Toman recovers the long-lost history of Canada's first women soldiers - nursing sisters who enlisted as officers with the Canadian Army Medical Corps. The nursing sisters had a mandate to salvage as many sick and wounded men as possible for return to the front lines. Nothing prepared them, however, for the poor living conditions, the scale of the casualties, or the type of wounds they encountered. But their letters and diaries reveal that they were determined to soldier on under all circumstances while still "living as well as possible."
