Heroic Australian Women in War (Unabridged) (MP3-CD) (Susanna De Vries)
about this item
In this inspiring book, Susanna de Vries profiles the love, dedication and selflessness of eleven outstanding women over the course of two world wars: from Olive Kin, who saved countless lives in the war-ravaged Balkans, although she lost her heart; to Gallipoli nurse Alice Kitchen, who also served in France; to Vivian Bullwinkel, who survived the Bangka Island Massacre only to face more than three years watching her colleagues die as Japanese prisoners of war. Facing not only the astounding courage they displayed amid death and chaos but also on the triumphs and pain of their personal lives, Susanna reveals how these women were as influential and heroic in civil life as they were in war.
