Australian Women in War By Susanna de Vries


Heroic Australian Women in War Astonishing Tales of Bravery from Gallipoli to Kokoda By Susanna de Vries


Renowned writer and historian Susanna de Vries profiles the grit, determination and selflessness of 11 outstanding Australian women serving in two World Wars: from Olive King , volunteer ambulance driver who saved countless lives in France and Serbia during World War I, to Vivian Bullwinkel, Joyce Twedell and Sylvia Muir, all three of whom endured years of starvation and cruelty on Bangka Island at the hands of their Japanese captors.Other women featured include Sister Alice Kitchen, Dr Agnes Bennett, Dr Lilian Cooper, Louise Mack, Joice Nankivell Loch, Mavis Parkinson and Sister May Hayman.

Sister Alice Kitchen was with the first contingent in WW1, a true ANZAC Girl nurse who travelled on the 'Benalla' troopship sailing on the 19th October 1914.

These are all women who deserve to be known, recognised and celebrated alongside their male peers. In her informal, vivid style, de Vries focuses not only on the astounding courage these women displayed in battle, but also on their personal struggles and accomplishments
