A Journal of Impressions in Belgium

Gelesen von Expatriate

(4,231 Sterne; 13 Bewertungen)

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 (6 hr 29 min)

na sorry I really couldn't get into this book. I only managed to get to part 7and gave up. it just seemed to waffle on, and I feel bad in saying this because without the volunteers we would not have these books, but I found the reader very monotone and boring. sorry reader.

interesting and disturbing ...

(4 Sterne)

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.
