London, Albert E. Marriott, 1930
£275

A simultaneously spirited & brutalising account of the First World War, as told from the perspective of a female ambulance driver. Originally commissioned to parody Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front (1928), the author instead wrote a serious, harrowing novel in part based on the (now lost) diaries of Winifred Young, who served in France during the war as an ambulance driver.
