On 3 September 1939, the Prime Minister declared that Britain was at war with Nazi Germany. Thousands of young women, many of them barely out of school, were sent headlong into gruelling training regimes that would see them become wartime nurses. Sisters features over 150 previously unpublished stories from the archives of the Royal College of Nursing. The vivid, poignant and riveting stories capture these nurses' incredible bravery and touching friendships.
