And all the time an endless stream of convoys brought the wounded from the trenches a few miles away - from which the noise of gunfire and exploding shells echoed as a daily background to the work of the hospital... a fine addition to the growing literature on the multi-faceted experiences of the First World War -- Juliet Gardiner THE TIMES an incredible insight into the working life of a nurse who 'patched up' the men who passed through the hospitals on their way to convalesce in 'good old Blighty' YOUR FAMILY TREE In a similar vein to Vera Britten's Testament of Youth, chronicling the realities of war and military hospital life, this offers an insight into the battlefield, medicine and society.

Kurzbeschreibung

The evocative diaries of a young nurse stationed in northern France during the First World War, published for the first time. A rare insight into the great war for fans of CALL THE MIDWIFE.



In April 1915, Dorothea Crewdson, a newly trained Red Cross nurse, and her best friend Christie, received instructions to leave for Le Tréport in northern France. Filled with excitement at the prospect of her first paid job, Dorothea began writing a diary. 'Who knows how long we shall really be out here? Seems a good chance from all reports of the campaigns being ended before winter but all is uncertain.'



Dorothea would go on to witness and record some of the worst tragedy of the First World War at first hand, though somehow always maintaining her optimism, curiosity and high spirits throughout. The pages of her diaries sparkle with warmth and humour as she describes the day-to-day realities and frustrations of nursing near the frontline of the battlefields, or the pleasure of a beautiful sunset, or a trip 'joy-riding' in the French countryside on one of her precious days off. One day she might be gossiping about her fellow nurses, or confessing to writing her diary while on shift on the ward, or illustrating the scene of the tents collapsing around them on a windy night in one of her vivid sketches. In another entry she describes picking shells out of the beds on the ward after a terrifying air raid (winning a medal for her bravery in the process).



Nearly a hundred years on, what shines out above all from the pages of these extraordinarily evocative diaries is a courageous, spirited, compassionate young woman, whose story is made all the more poignant by her tragically premature death at the end of the war just before she was due to return home.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The WWI Book I've Been Looking For 5. August 2013
Von TerriGarrett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is absolutely charming. It is, as advertised, the diaries of a VAD nurse in WWI. That simple description doesn't quite capture the spirit of this book,however, because the author of the diaries is impossible to describe in a line or two. Dorothea is intelligent, compassionate and a great observer of the human condition. She commands an impressive vocabulary and writes with humility and creates a vivid picture of her time in 'The Great War.'

In addition, she includes throughout her diaries these charming little sketches which illustrate every aspect of the scenery, the soldiers, the hospital staff and the rest of her life in France. They're such a sweet little touch and it really helps you feel like you're stepping back through time and seeing events unfold through Dorothea's eyes.

I've read a lot of diaries, since I was a history major in college. Most of the diaries I've read were required reading for some class or another and I found them dull as dishwater. Not Dorothea! I prefer this to any World War I book I've read in recent years (and I've read a lot of them). If you're interested in WWI and especially the life of a VAD nurse, I can't recommend this book highly enough.

I teach literature. We have been studying the poetry of Wilfred Owen. (CIE Paper 9) Dorothea's War is a comforting look at the people behind the scenes. The down to earth narrative allows the reader to connect to the major battles.Never did this courageous woman know that she encapsulates the battles and the need to be "normal" at a terrible time.I loved every moment of this memoir. If you are at all interested in WW1....PLEASE read this fascinating, comforting! and decisive narrative.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good book for people interested in WW1, nursing, or adventerous spirits! 26. August 2014
Von Rookie lane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A great insight into a somewhat unknown job! I loved the diary entry format, it made it easy to stop reading and start back again. I will confess that though I really liked the book, for some reason it put me to sleep as well :) Maybe because of my ignorance. I had a hard time picturing just exactly what she did and what life was like in WW1, whereas with WW2, I've seen movies, etc and so can visualize this time more in my mind. A great book though and worth reading!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Touching, Amusing and Deeply Personal. 18. März 2015

This is what Diaries from the Front should be ! Four years of day to day drudge, joy and compassion, all in the simple elegant words of an heroic woman.
I got to know her, respect her and, yes, Love her. At times I wanted to reach out and hold her. Not what a proper Edwardian lady of that time would have allowed, or understood. She and those ladies who gave of themselves to comfort the hurt and dying of WW One, should have had much more of that kind of attention.
Cudos to the author for giving us a chance to know Dorothea. Thanks for keeping her words as they must have been set down. The charming little sketches she made to punctuate some of the words.. were priceless.
This is a book any one can read, watching Dorothea move about each day, from the comfort of our warm and dry "Tents".
