In 1938, eighteen-year-old Phyllis Elsworth packs her bags, says goodbye to her anxious parents and sets off from her quiet seaside home for the Hackney Hospital in London’s bustling East End, where she is to fulfil her dreams to train as a nurse. At first, it is a whirlwind of long days, hard work, new friends and plenty of mischief, but just ten months later Britain declares war on Germany and life at the hospital is transformed. Phyll’s days become an endless cycle of air-raid sirens, injured servicemen and anxiously waiting for news of loved ones.

SCORPION SUNSET Catrin Collier
1916, Mesopotamia. The Turks order prisoners from the siege of Kut to march the hundreds of miles to Baghdad. The men are weak from starvation after the five-month siege, with many suffering from dysentery, scabies and malaria. They have no medical supplies – and then the hot weather begins. . . Hundreds of men die on the march, the stragglers killed by Arab tribesmen; those too ill to move are left behind to die. Soon, though, the tide of war turns, and eventually the British march victorious into Baghdad.
