The only Western woman to enlist as a soldier in the First World War, the Englishwoman Flora Sandes became a heroine and a media sensation when she fought for the Serbian Army and pursued a distinguished career in its ranks. This account charts her incredible story: her tomboyish childhood in genteel Victorian England, her mission to Serbia as a Red Cross volunteer and subsequent military enrolment, her celebrity lecture tours, her marriage to a fellow officer, her survival in a Gestapo prison during the Second World War and her final years in Suffolk.

We Love This Book magazine

Meticulous biography... Sandes did not fight for ideology, but for excitement and camaraderie.
The Times - Ben Macintyre

Miller's prose is clear, and she writes with passion about her subject, injecting a Saturday morning picture-house feel to Flora's exploits on the Serbian front line. It is this that makes the book a bracing narrative, appealing to the general reader... endnotes, and a thorough bibliography of primary and secondary sources, also give the book academic substance.
The Scotsman

This is an inspiring story, meticulously researched and referenced, of courageous women whose presence made a difference to an embattled and courageous country.
