The 'War to end all Wars' as seen through the eyes of three young women It is 1915. War is being fought on a horrific scale in the trenches of France but it might as well be a world away from sixteen-year-old New Zealander Midge Macpherson at school in England learning to be a young lady. But the war is coming closer: Midge's brothers are in the army and her twin Tim is listed as 'missing' in the devastating defeat of the Anzac forces at Gallipoli . Desperate to do their bit - and avoid the boredom of school and the restrictions of Society - Midge and her friends Ethel and Anne start a canteen in France caring for the endless flow of wounded soldiers returning from the front. Midge recruited by the over-stretched ambulance service is thrust into carnage and scenes of courage she could never have imagined. And when the war is over all three girls - and their Anzac boys as well - discover that even going 'home' can be both strange and wonderful. Exhaustively researched but written with the lightest of touches this is Jackie French at her very best. Ages 12+
