Dr Newman tells the true story of the women working in a First World War field hospital organised and run by the suffrage movement.

With the advancing Bulgarian and German armies closing in on them, the women had refused to leave their posts despite bombs and shells falling, quite literally, in their midst. Although one woman commented, “It is a wonderful life but a very dangerous one”, another was more cynical, believing that the National Union of Suffrage Societies(NUWSS) Committee at home was less concerned about what actually happened to them than whether their actions made good press copy to further the suffrage cause.
