Review by: Mary Anne Smrz on Aug. 17, 2015 :
A dramatic view of a Civil War field hospital, a volunteer nurse and a soldier she cared about. In a few pages, the author captures the reason the soldier enlisted and how a female nurse eased his suffering. Both characters giving the "last full measure of devotion."

Interesting if it had been a book rather than a few good pages and advertising for other material.

Review by: Scott Johnson on Dec. 7, 2011 :
This was a great read! Vividly describes the ugliness and carnage of war. It also offers a glimpse into the life of a nurse who aided the soldiers, and who often helped them leave this world gracefully.
