Summary A Rose for the ANZAC Boys

A Rose for the ANZAC Boys Read & Download Æ 104 Read ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ì Jackie French The 'War to end all Wars' as seen through the eyes of three young womenIt 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 a. Having been educated at an all girls school I have always been told that girls can do anything This book proves that saying right and in doing so recognises the efforts and achievements of millions of women in World War One Midge pronounced Migee is a wonderful heroine and I m sure French has captured the spirit of the women who fought just as hard as the soldiers doing battle However she has also captured the spirit of the ANZAC boys the Anzacs were the bravest stubbornest troops around So far I m kind of making this book sound wonderfully empowering and don t get me wrong it is but there is a much darker side to this book It is after all a book about war and although it may be aimed at teenagers French has not shied away from graphic descriptions of the injuries Midge sees as she serves cocoa to the soldiers and transports them in ambulances She also does not attempt to gloss over the hell on earth that Midge encounters near the front lines Two rows of tables Ordinary tables like the kitchen table back home But these were draped with sheets not a tablecloth and decorated with blood instead of teapots and on each table instead of a plate biscuits was a living bleeding man And still the wounded came staggering along the village street on foot now as well as in the carts an endless procession desperate to reach the station and a hospital train a doctor s hands The amount of research that has gone into this book really shows and the Author s Notes at the end are insightful It is very interesting to note that four young girls did indeed set up a canteen at a railway in France and that while this book may not be true it is based on true events Amongst the moments of heartbreak and sadness in this book there were moments of love laughter strength and defiance A beautiful and truly thought provoking novel One end of the cemetery was mud the white crosses the only brightness But the other where the graves were months rather than weeks or days old was a mass of flowers poppies and yellow mustard flowers dancing between the wooden crosses as though to replace the flowers the mothers wives and sisters might have bought This book was read to commemorate ANZAC Day This review and many can be found at Maree s Musings
