    • This was an amazing and heart rendering story of the QA s Tans and other nursing personel during WW2 Courage, heartache, suffering, unbelieveable conditions and wherever the fighting was so were the nurses there too What a story I have been outraged, in tears and have laughed at parts of this book I have travelled all over the world with these nurses from France, Belgium, India, Africa, Singapore, Burma, Hong Kong, Malta, to places that have changed their name several times since then These nurs [...]


    • This was a fascinating book to read I knew nothing about the QAs before starting and learnt so much during the course of reading the book.Some of the details are quite harrowing, though the comments made by the nurses themselves are revealingly modest about their own actions Especially, difficult to read were the comments about the treatment meted out by the Japanese Also, the rescue of inmates from Blsen and the prisoner of war camps.I would recommend this as a different slant on the various bo [...]


    • Amazing for the women who appear in the pages, women surrounded by horror and yet still able to do their job Their stories are harrowing but the women are inspiring.


    • Sisters in Arms by Nicola Tyrer is a fascinating account of the Queen Alexandra Imperial Military Nursing Service QAs , as told within the context of World War II The QAs were founded in 1902, but this is largely a story of their service in the second world conflict It s an account in their own words first hand descriptions of life for these nurses on the frontline, on troop ships, in makeshift hospitals , casualty clearing stations and the dessert and the jungle The individual accounts are over [...]


    • Amazing book looking at the work of the unsung and unspoken of heroes of the Second World War.The Queen Alexandra Imperial Military Nursing Services often shortened to QAs endured the bloody battles of the First World War known then as the Great War and would see their finest hour during World War 2 From the harsh climates of Africa, being shipwrecked and captured by Japanese soldiers, the invasion and fall of Hong Kong and Singapore by the Japanese again this would prove to be their darkest hou [...]


    • A fascinating insight into the lives of nurses in WW2 It s written in a comfortable style making it easy to read, whether you want to dip in and out or settle down for a long spell Some of the experiences are harrowing and it s amazing what some people went through that many of us know nothing about I found it also very informative about the different locations the war was being fought and the varying conditions of climate etc which both the troops and the medics had to endure I can see me readi [...]


    • Fascinating book about a part of the war effort I certainly knew little about Brought to this by a interest awakened by Diana Gabaldon who has her heroine having been a WW2 combat nurse Wondered where and how much this happened well here is the answer and it was just about everywhere Some horrific stories and a huge amount of personal bravery So much in the luck of the draw too.Well worth a read.


    • this book made me change careers, and has been read a hundred times since on each reading i realise i spend my days in a very boring manner and i become desperate to prove myself everything non fiction should be engaging characters, fascinating stories with plenty of scandal and bits that make you cry


    • Interesting story that was poorly executed These women were amazing, but it was hard to keep up with who was shipwrecked, who was attacked, and who was interned in Hong Kong I think it could have been better told.


    • I found the parts written by the QA s interesting and emotional in parts but the historian in me made me very critical about this book However, I did learn some things I didn t know and have learnt what truly remarkable women the QA s were.


    • Interesting wartime factual story about the nurses that served During 2nd world war I got lost at times with all the various battles, nonetheless these were incredible women that served the troops across the globe My deepest respect for their work 3



    • Wow A totally different perspective about the 1st and 2nd world wars One which was completely moving and compelling and gave me an even greater respect for past generations.
