The second book in the Kiwis at War series, following on from '1914: Riding Into War' by Susan Brocker, which was published in 2014. The story follows two New Zealand nurses, cousins Mel and Harriet, who volunteer during World War I alongside their brothers. They join the NZ Army Nursing Service. Harriet spends most of her time in the Egyptian hospitals whilst Mel is aboard hospital ships, such as the well known 'Maheno'. Both have to learn to deal with the sheer overwhelming numbers of wounded and the horrific injuries caused by war as well as the pain of personal loss and waste of young lives. Really well done, well researched and written. The contents page, detailed map, timeline, glossary, author's note and photographs all combine to make this another fantastic installment in this important commemorative series. Highly recommended.
