Gallipoli: Year of Love and Duty
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
In 1915 Sara Winwood writes a diary. It begins as a grand adventure for Sara and five other newly enlisted sisters in the Australian Army Nursing Service heading into the unknown to do their bit in a distant war.
But on board the hospital ship Gascon adventure turns to ordeal. The women face an unrelenting barrage of blood, death and disease with only the fortitude and humour of their patients – shrapnel-filled men scraped off the hostile cliffs of the Gallipoli peninsula – to keep them going.
They don’t just see war; they touch, taste and breathe it.
