In Love and War (L Byrski)

In the aftermath of the Battle of Britain, chronically burned airmen were sent to a hospital in a small Sussex town, where Archibald McIndoe rebuilt the faces, hands and bodies of flyers with revolutionary surgical and therapeutic treatments. For Liz Byrski, growing up in the town after the war, the faces of the burned airmen became the stuff of her nightmares.

In her late sixties, Liz returned to the town to make peace with her memories and to speak with the survivors and with the nurses who played a vital and unorthodox role in their treatment, sometimes at a significant personal cost.

Soft Cover, 217 pages.
