Book Review | A Nurse at the Front by Edith Appleton

17328776The second of four unique war diaries produced in conjunction with the Imperial War Museum, this book tells the story of the experiences of a nurse working close to the Western Front in the First World War.

Pages: 311 | Format: Paperback

Real life stories like this have always had the ability to pull me in. I love reading diary entries, especially ones written during the first and second world wars.
This book goes into a lot of detail about Sister Edith Appleton's life, and shines a light on the conditions they had to work in.
I truly loved this book, and the emotions that it stirred up. It showed how things which to most of us today, would be horrific to see, were commonplace for nurses during the war.
This is a fantastic read, and I would highly recommend it.
