Publisher's Summary

Anne Watts grew up in a small village in north Wales in the 1940s. Inspired by school geography lessons that told of far-off lands, she broke out of the conventional options open to women in post-war Britain, defying her father’s dated views. She trained as a nurse and midwife, joined the Save the Children Fund and was posted to Vietnam in 1967.

One of only three British nurses in the region, Anne witnessed the random cruelty of warfare, nursing injured and orphaned children and caring for wounded and dying servicemen. She went on to take her skills to the victims of Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, to Lebanon during the Israeli occupation, and Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm. Over some 45 years Anne has brought her courage and compassion to those most in need of help.
