Abstract:

"When Britain went to war in 1914 many people from all backgrounds rallied to the cause, determined to join the colours or be useful in some other way. Lady Dorothie Feilding, the twenty-five-year-old daughter of the Earl of Denbigh, wasted no time in volunteering for the Munro Motor Ambulance Corps ... [Her letters] reflect the tragedy and horror of war and also tensions of being a woman at the front contending with shells, traumatic wounds, gossip, lice, vehicle maintenance, and inconvenient marriage proposals. She enjoyed a ready access to all levels of military life"--Jacket.
