“What a place to send troops to!” The First World War Nurses of the Salonika Front

Learn how these courageous women kept their spirits up and did their best for the soldiers in their care.


Whilst the nurses on the Western Front tacked the terrible injuries of wounded soldiers, their nursing sisters in northern Greece faced an additional enemy – that of disease. Sometimes called “The Doctor’s War”, the Eastern campaign in Salonika suffered from enormously challenging surroundings as well as from a lack of medical resources. The beautiful scenery and sunsets did not compensate for the harsh and unforgiving rocky terrain, the malaria-carrying mosquitoes and the extremes of temperature. Learn how these courageous women kept their spirits up and did their best for the soldiers in their care.
