Book Description

A riveting new work from Susanna de Vries continuing astonishing stories of female bravey from Gallipoli to Kokoda. In this inspiring book, Susanna de Vries profiles the love, dedication and selflessness of eleven outstanding women over the course of two world wars: from Olive Kin, who saved countless lives in the war-ravaged Balkans, although she lost her heart; to Gallipoli nurse Alice Kitchen, who also served in France; to Vivian Bullwinkel, who survived the Bangka Island Massacre only to face more than three years watching her colleagues die as a Japanese prisoner of war. Facing not onlt the astounding courage they displayed amid death and chaos but also on the triumphs and pain of their personal lives, Susanna reveals how these women were as influential and heroic in civil life as they were in war.
