Nobody Ever Wins A War
The World War I Diaries of Ella Mae Bongard, R.NBook - 1998
This is the engrossing true story of a courageous woman at war. Far from the rural tranquillity of her childhood in Waupous and Picton, in South-eastern Ontario, Ella Mae Bongard, as a young nurse, faces the horrible harvest from trench warfare in World War I in France. With her innate tenacity and wit, and a professional dedication instilled at the Presbyterian Hospital in New York City, one of the world's great hospitals, she and her unit survive an almost overwhelming struggle to care for thou-sands of wounded soldiers. The picturesque town of Etretat, near Dieppe, on the coast of Normandy, provides the setting for this historic journal.
