Nurses of Passchendaele
October 12, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm£5
The Ypres Salient saw some of the most bitter fighting of the First World War. Drawing on letters, diaries and personal accounts from archives all over the world, Nurses of Passchendaele tells the stories of the extraordinary women who had to deal with injured men. It faithfully recounts their experiences behind the Ypres Salient in one of the most intense and prolonged casualty evacuation processes in the history of modern warfare. Christine Hallett is Professor of Nursing History at the University of Manchester and Director of the UK Centre for the History of Nursing and Midwifery.
