The cargo ship on which she was evacuated from Singapore in 1942 was shelled, leaving her on a makeshift raft with40 years, Penny Starns describes the often horrific, but occasionally heart-warming, experiences of this unbreakable woman who, not content with surviving the war, went on to become a brigadier and Chief Military Nurse. Using recently released material from The National Archives and Turners own words, she re-analyses the Pacific conflict against a backdrop of one womans incredible fortitude and strength, and brings the story of a remarkable woman to life.
