This book, the second in a series of four unique War Diaries produced in conjunction with the Imperial War Museum, tells a story that is rarely heard: the experiences of a nurse working close to the Western Front in the First World War. Incredibly, Edith Appleton served in France for the whole of the conflict. Her bravery and dedication won her the Military OBE, the Royal Red Cross and the Belgian Queen Elizabeth medal among others. Her diary details with compassion all the horrors of the 'war to end wars', including the first use of poison gas and the terrible cost of battles such as Ypres, but she also records what life was like for nurses and how she spent her time off-duty. There are moments of humour amongst the tragedy, and even lyrical accounts of the natural beauty that still existed amidst all the destruction.

Nurses at the Front

A eloquent pair of observers illuminate the role of women in wartime and add significantly to the literature on the Great War.

The skill and care of the women of the Allied military nursing services was remembered gratefully by hundreds of thousands of wounded servicemen. The small peacetime services increased rapidly by enrolling reservists and volunteers; the great majority of the nurses who cared for Allied casualties were 'civilians in uniform', who worked tirelessly under difficult conditions and in tented hospitals close to the front lines in real danger; many nurses paid for their devotion with their lives. This first-ever fully illustrated study of the US, British, Commonwealth, and other nursing organisations includes many unpublished photographs and 24 meticulously illustrated colour figures.

The achievements of Australian servicemen and women have played a central role in shaping Australia's national identity. But while we rightly commemorate the sacrifices of Australians in war, we have ignored those who returned to Australia and their struggles to reintegrate into Australian society. The Cost of War: Australians Return focuses on the Anzacs who returned to Australia from the First World War, the Second World War, and Vietnam. It examines the effects of combat, the emotionaland physical scars borne by returned men and women, the impact of return on families and friends, the repatriation system that sought to alleviate the effects of return, and the efforts of Australians to understand the bodily, psychological, and cultural wounds of war. Although the book presents a darker side of the Anzac experience, it is also an appreciation of how Australians have turned something so painful into a political mythology of enduring significance. Written in a clear, refreshing, and accessible style, the author's insightful analysis is based on extensive research carried out throughout Australia.
