NO MAN'S LAND The Trailblazing Women Who Ran Britain's Most Extraordinary Military Hospital During World War I

by | Read by Suzanne Toren

History • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Suzanne Toren has a lovely French accent and is very good at indicating by tone or timing that a passage is in quotes or otherwise emphasized. She narrates the fascinating story of a pair of British suffragist surgeons who ran military hospitals throughout WWI in France and London, staffed entirely by women. The text is occasionally repetitive, perhaps necessarily, as Moore draws heavily on letters and other contemporaneous accounts, and the writers are describing the same phenomena: jaw-droppingly smug misogyny, as the male establishment insisted that women could not do what they were doing daily with astonishing skill and courage; the horrors of Ypres and the Somme; the pandemic of 1919. Toren delivers a penetrating and moving audio experience; the story will haunt you. B.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
