by Mary Borden

A remarkable and unjustly forgotten account of the horrors of the First World War from the perspective of an American nurse behind French lines, The Forbidden Zone deserves to be read alongside the likes of Sassoon, Graves and Remarque

Mary Borden worked for four years in an evacuation hospital unit following the front lines up and down the European theater of the First World War. This beautifully written book, to be read alongside the likes of Sassoon, Graves, and Remarque, is a collection of her memories and impressions of that experience. Describing the men as they march into battle, engaging imaginatively with the stories of individual soldiers, and recounting procedures at the field hospital, the author offers a perspective on the war that is both powerful and intimate.
