Very detailed. Takes some concentration. But an interesting account of the author's journey to bring to life the people in the film which was a huge and comprehensive task.

Would you try another book written by Nick Albert or narrated by Paul Douglass?

Maybe, but the author needs to edit it better. Sometimes there is a slow ramble with too much detail. Wasn't that fussed with the narration, but I got used to it. It also showed up the editing that was needed.

What did you like best about this story?

It was easy listening when out walking. Didn't have to concentrate much. Took me a little bit to get into it as it wasn't as polished as other books. I am not sure I would call it hilarious but I did laugh out loud some times.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Paul Douglass?

Probably would not seek the narrator out.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

No

What did you like most about Veiled Warriors?

It traversed the records of a range of nurses' experiences in WWI in relation to the main theatres of the war.

What did you like best about this story?

The extracts from the nurses' diaries and letters.

Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Jasicki’s performances?

Maybe - as I have worked out how to minimise her pedantic narration and condescending pronunciations - speed it up a little. The narration was irritating until I did this and then I was able to settle in and listen more easily.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No - its not that type of book. It does take some copncentration so as not to miss content detail.

Any additional comments?

This book is a good overview and covers some of the issues. I found a little repetition here and there which may not have been picked up if reading it.
