This book is an autobiography of the World War I poet Mary Wedderburn Cannan. In 1911, at the age of 18, she joined the Voluntary Aid Detachment, training as a nurse and eventually reaching the rank of Quartermaster. During the war, she went to Rouen in the spring of 1915, helping to run the canteen at the railhead there for four weeks, then returning to help her father at the Oxford University Press, but finally returning to France in the espionage department at the War Office Department in Paris.
