In this lucid and cogently-argued book, Christine Hallett explores the nature of the practices developed by nurses and their volunteer-assistants during the First World War.She argues that nurses found meaning in their complex and stressful work by identifying it as a process of containing trauma. Broad in its scope and detailed in its research, the book analyzes the work of nurses from Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and the United States of America.It draws on highly personal writings: letters and diaries drawn from archives and libraries throughout the world.This wide-ranging book explores a range of treatment scenarios, from the Western and Eastern fronts to the Eastern Mediterranean, Mesopotamia, and India.It considers both the efforts of nurses to provide physical, emotional, and moral containment to their patients, and the work they did to maintain their own physical and emotional integrity.
