Click here to see Anzac Girls DVD The Other Anzacs ' edited by Peter Rees. Using diaries and letters, Peter Rees takes us into the Australian hospital camps, wards and the tent surgeries on the edge of some of the most horrific battlefronts of human history. By the end of The Great War, forty-five Australian and New Zealand nurses had died on overseas service and over two hundred had been decorated. These were women who left for war on an adventure, but were soon confronted with remarkable challenges. No amount of training in Australia could ever have prepared them for the slaughter of Gallipoli or the Western Front. They first experienced the horrible wounds on men from the Gallipoli landing and they were there for the savagery of the Western Front. Within twelve hours of the slaughter at Anzac Cove they had over 500 horrifically injured patients to tend on the one crammed hospital ship, and scores of deaths. Their strength and humanity were remarkable. Lest We Forget the compassion and courage shown by these Australian and New Zealand women to the boys of the ANZAC legend!
