More than Bombs and Bandages exposes the false assumption that military nurses only nursed. Based on author Kirsty Harris' CEW Bean Prize winning PhD thesis, this is a book that is far removed from the 'devotion to duty' stereotyping offering an intriguing and sometimes gut wrenching insight into the Australian Army Nursing Service (AANS) during World War I.
