A fascinating character of her times and an inspiration to women the world over, Flora Sandes is brought to life and restored to her rightful place in history by this authorized biography, compiled with the help of her family, and using hitherto unused private papers and photographs. The only woman to serve as a soldier in World War I, the Englishwoman Flora Sandes became a hero and media sensation when she fought for the Serbian Army and pursued a distinguished career in its ranks as officer. This account charts her incredible story, from her tomboyish childhood in genteel Victorian England, her mission to Serbia as a Red Cross volunteer and subsequent military enrollment, her celebrity lecture tours of Europe, her marriage to a fellow officer, and her survival of a Gestapo prison during World War II to her final years in Suffolk.
