More than Bombs and Bandages (K Harris)


Based on author Kirsty Harris’ CEW Bean Prize winning PhD thesis, this book addresses the assumptions that military nurses only nursed. It is far removed from the ‘devotion to duty’ stereotyping, instead offering an intriguing and sometimes gut wrenching insight into the Australian Army Nursing Service (AANS) during the First World War. More than Bombs and Bandages provides rich pickings for all those interested in nursing history, women in the Australian military, and the application of medical treatments in times of war.
