A Journal of Impressions in Belgium


Read by Expatriate

(4.4 stars; 7 reviews)

In 1914, at the age of 51, the novelist and poet May Sinclair volunteered to leave the comforts of England to go to the Western Front, joining the Munro Ambulance Corps ministering to wounded Belgian soldiers in Flanders. Her experiences in the Great War, brief and traumatizing as they were, permeated the prose and poetry she wrote after this time. Witness of great human pain and tragedy, Sinclair was in serious danger of her life on multiple occasions. This journal makes no attempt to be anything more than a journal: a lucid, simple, heart-breaking account of war at first hand. - Summary by Expatriate

Reviews

interesting and disturbing ...

(4 stars)

Interestingly disturbing look into WWI and its effective (or not) use of available medical help and military personnel usage. Reread - didn’t want to miss something. Well and clearly narrated... recommended for history buffs and normal people.
