A beautifully acted compelling story of Australian nurses during ww1. Even better that it's based on real people... A quality series, I loved it.

My husband and I loved this DVD. Based on the book "The Other Anzacs", this television series is about the extraordinary compassion and courage shown by a group of Australian nurses during WW I. From the real letters and diaries of the 5 main ANZAC nurses, it tells the story of their hardships, losses and love on the battle fields. I recommend watching the Bonus Features.

I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful series. The characters are believable, the sets and costumes authentic-looking, and the pervasive "we'll get through this" attitude heartbreaking. Watch it!

Very touching movie based 5 dedicated nurses and their courageous work in time of the first war. Well done with the accuracy of the costumes for the time of war-1914-1918, the wounded scenes , drama, bombing etc..... Based on true story. I like the fact they show the real pictures of the 5 nurses involved, the writing from Harry, Diary notes and special features. It makes it very personal.

Totally agree with previous comments. Very well done WW One drama. Refreshing/inspiring to see women get the credit they are due. If you like Call the Midwife, you will love this!

Loved this - very well produced & riveting stories woven together. This was based on actual diaries & recollections of the nurses who served at Gallipoli. The role of military nurses has not received nearly the attention deserved. I believe all nursing students & new nurses in practice should watch this series. Powerful in its presentation.

Loved this, especially because it was based on true accounts of WWI nurses. Very addictive, and you could certainly binge on this...

My husband and I both found this extremely well-done.
The fact that it was based on real characters and their diaries gave it greater depth, and caused me greater appreciation for the many who served in various capacities through war times.
Well worth watching.

I found this to be unexpectedly touching. The stories are all true, based on the letters and diaries of the women portrayed. Their real names are used and several have Wikipedia pages. What lives they led--I would like to know even more about them.
