Those Splendid Girls by Katherine Dewar

Those Splendid GirlsMy Goodreads rating: 3 of 5 stars

At first I wasn’t that interested in reading about PEI nurses in WWI, but the book is well-researched and contains excerpts from some of the nurses’ private diaries. There are many photos as well and is a good read for anyone interested in the medical aspects of war, and Canada’s involvement in treating soldiers in various hospitals in the field or back in England.Another fact I learned is that nurses held an officer’s rank in the Canadian army, something that no other army did for their nurses.
