[A] highly informative, thoroughly researched, and admirably organized book We can be grateful that Christine Hallett's Veiled Warriors now exists to so effectively set the record straight. ( Roads to the Great War, David F. Beer)

Military nursing was not only about winning the war, it was also about women gaining recognition for their profession and political rights for their sex ... as this excellent book so amply demonstrates. ( Good Book Guide)

This book serves as a useful and interesting guide to this neglected part of World War One. ( Peter Howson, Methodist Recorder)

The book is a resplendent testimony to the nurses of the First World War. ( Jim Young, Glycosmedia)

Immaculately researched, this is an authoritative and objective history of nurses both professional and voluntary in the First World War. ( Shirley Williams)

Christine Hallett's book is a powerful and compelling account of professional nursing during the First World War. Immensely readable, Veiled Warriors presents an eloquent appraisal of nursing's vital contribution to the care of wounded service personnel and its role in wider medical efforts. Christine Hallett has used some incredibly strong individual stories to illustrate her case and poses a masterful challenge to many of the myths that exist about nursing during the conflict. This was a truly significant period in the development of nursing and Veiled Warriors is set to be essential reading for those of us interested in this fascinating time for the profession. ( Dr Peter Carter OBE, Chief Executive & General Secretary of the Royal College of Nursing)

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 220 x 144 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Caring for the wounded of the First World War was tough and challenging work, demanding extensive knowledge, technical skill, and high levels of commitment. Although allied nurses were admired in their own time for their altruism and courage, their image was distorted by the lens of popular mythology. They came to be seen as self-sacrificing heroines, romantic foils to the male combatant and doctors handmaidens, rather than being appreciated as trained professionals performing significant work in their own right. Christine Hallett challenges these myths to reveal the true story of allied nursing in the First World War - one which is both more complex and more absorbing. Drawing upon evidence from archives across the world, Veiled Warriors offers a compelling account of nurses wartime experiences and a clear appraisal of their work and its contribution to the allied cause between 1914 and 1918, on both the Western and the Eastern Fronts. Nurses believed they were involved in a multi-layered battle. Primarily, they were fighting for the lives of their patients on the second battlefield of casualty clearing stations, transports, and military hospitals. Beyond this, they were an integral component of the allied military machine, putting their own lives at risk in field hospitals close to the front lines, on board hospital ships vulnerable to enemy submarine attack, and in base hospitals subject to heavy bombardment. As working women in a sometimes hostile, chauvinistic world, allied nurses were also fighting to gain recognition for their profession and political rights for their sex. For them, military nursing might help to win not only the war itself, but also a more powerful voice for women in the post-war world. Nº de ref. de la librería AOP9780198703693
