Powerful social history in which the nurses of World War II tell their stories, in their own words.
Sisters is a compelling exploration of the heroism and dedication of British nurses during World War II. Featuring over 150 previously unpublished interviews from the archives of the Royal College of Nursing, these vivid and poignant accounts bring to life both the horrendous and joyful day-to-day realities of nursing during wartime.
In 1939 thousands of girls (and some boys, too), barely out of school, were plucked from sheltered backgrounds and subjected to unimaginably tough nurse training regimes before being sent out to share the harsh conditions of the fighting services. They had to deal with the most appalling suffering, yet found reserves of inner strength that carried them through episodes of unrelieved horror. Over 200 nurses died; torpedoed in hospital ships or bombed in field hospitals. Dozens won medals for gallantry. From the beaches of Dunkirk, to the horrors of Blitzkrieg and D-Day, they saw it all.
In Sisters, these remarkable individuals tell their stories.
