    One thought on “1915: Wounds of War (Kiwis at War, #2)”

    1. Wow! A brilliant read from eyewitness perspectives (fictitious as it is, but based on real stories). It is so good to read something of the great war, but with fellow Kiwi soldiers and Kiwi nurses involved, giving it to us as it was. Menefy has captured the realities of war, not in a gruesome way, but in a way that makes you really care about it and about the real people involved and to understand how they 'just got on with it', no matter what they had to deal with emotionally, from both intense [...]

    2. The second book in the Kiwis at War series, following on from '1914: Riding Into War' by Susan Brocker, which was published in 2014. The story follows two New Zealand nurses, cousins Mel and Harriet, who volunteer during World War I alongside their brothers. They join the NZ Army Nursing Service. Harriet spends most of her time in the Egyptian hospitals whilst Mel is aboard hospital ships, such as the well known 'Maheno'. Both have to learn to deal with the sheer overwhelming numbers of wounded [...]

    3. an amazing read. like the first it only took me a few days to get through it all. lovely to see how this part of the war was seen by the New Zealand nurses who went overseas to look after their boys. can't wait for the next book in the series

    4. This second book in the series Kiwis at War focuses on the nursing experiences of two cousins Harriet and Mel. Harriet works in hospitals in Egypt whilst Mel is mainly on hospital ships. The book covers the difficult working conditions of the nurses as well as the harsh conditions faced by the soldiers. As a book aimed for teens, it's not overly graphic in descriptions, but doesn't gloss over things either.

    5. I love how this book talked about characters from the first Kiwis at war book. This tells the story of kiwi nurses "off to see the world" It describes the poor conditions these wonderful women coped under, the sheer tragedy and horror that they encountered everyday, the state that the troops were in when they finally got to the hospitals, yet it is not gory or gruesome. It's honest. Looking forward to next years installment.

    6. It is a very well researched story that gives the reader plenty of details about the exhausting and harrowing work of New Zealand nurses as they care for the wounded soldiers. We also learn about what it was like for soldiers fighting in the trenches, their “clothes were filthy and tattered”, “alive with lice and fleas”, and as well as being wounded they were “worn out and starved”. A great read for young adults interested in nursing and World War One.
