This volume tells the story of the New Zealand women who nursed overseas in the South African War, World War I, the Spanish Civil War and the various theatres of World War II. These accounts of the New Zealand nurses who served their country during wartime shed light on the dangers they faced and the bravery they exhibited in South Africa from 1899 to 1902, in the wars from 1914 to 1918, in Spain during the Civil War, and in a far-flung variety of countries from 1939 to 1948. Drawing on diaries, letters, and interviews, this book focuses on the personal experiences of individual nurses and their memories.
