Thanks, Steelwhisper!

This short collection of vignettes, written by an American nurse, is based on her service at field hospitals in Belgium during WW1. It speaks volumes about the reality of that war and about the absurdity of all wars. This book should be read by all who want to know what that war really was like.

Ellen Newbold La Motte was deeply moved by her experiences. What you read is deeply cynical. This cynicism is absolutely appropriate. Her message rings loud and clear.
