Summary
"In Sisters 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 frontlines. Nothing prepared them for poor living conditions, the scale of 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"."--
