KIRKUS REVIEW

A classic of the war, which was suppressed in this country after four printings, presumably because the government could not face the commentary it proves to be on the horrors and futility of war. A collection of brief stories, carved out of the heart of experience of a trained nurse behind the front, -- stories which capture the heartbreak and cruelty and passion and ugliness that were exposed to those who cared for the wounded and the dying.
