The experiences of the Queen Alexandra nurses in the Second World War are some of the greatest adventure stories of modern times yet, incredibly, they are largely untold. The service numbered 12,000 women during the war - middle-class girls in their early 20s were plucked from sheltered backgrounds and subjected to unimaginably tough training regimes and sent out to face horrific casualties. Wherever there was a front, whenever there was a raid, a battle, a bombing, the QAs were in the thick of it. The tales of how they coped with these trials is profoundly moving and uplifting, as they recount their deeds with modesty and understatement.
