Summary
"When Canada entered the Great War in 1914, thousands of women eager to see active service signed on to nurse the wounded. What they experienced in the hospitals behind the front lines would remain with them forever. Through thunderous explosions and ominous flashes in the distance, nursing sisters worked at a feverish pace to care for bleeding wounds, broken and missing limbs, and the other devastating injuries of war." "In Agnes Warner and the }Viols-Mg Sisters of the Great Wu-, Shawna M. Quinn explores the world of these brave women the grueling, dangerous conditions of work and the brutal realities they faced. Drawing upon the letters of Saint John native Agnes aligner, Quinn paints a picture of the dedicated women who witnessed firsthand the atrocities of war."--BOOK JACKET
