"Over the last century countless millions of words have been written, in prose & poetry, in an attempt to understand this war. Why the horrors, the suffering, that appear to have no answer. And nearly all these words focus on the men who fought in this terrible war. Red Poppies and the White Waratah is a tribute to women, many of whom are unknown, of the Wollondilly Shire & nearby districts. There were the nurses who joined the Australian Army Nursing Service & endured often horrific conditions as they cared for sick & wounded men. Many became ill themselves. At home, civilian women devoted their time to fund raising & providing items that were essential to the well-being of servicemen abroad. They also undertook the care of families, businesses & farms. Wounded & sick men returned, broken by their experiences. It was their womenfolk who nursed & supported them amidst many hardships. These women represent not only their sisters from Wollondilly but women throughout Australia..." Card Covers. Size: 250mm - 330m. 156 pages. Covers have some rubbing, shelf-wear, and some creasing.
