Review: NURSES AT THE FRONT: WRITING THE WOUNDS OF THE GREAT WAR edited by Margaret R. Higonnet

Impressions in Ink recently read and reviewed Nurses at the Front: Writing the Wounds of the Great War edited by Margaret R. Higonnet for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s a sample:

It is in its aftermath that nurses and surgeons care for the wounded.
