War and Women

by Mabel Annie Stobart

A gripping account of a woman's bravery and determination to help those in need in the midst of war. Mabel Annie Stobart was a pioneering British aid worker who dedicated her life to helping others. In 1912, she created the Women's Sick and Wounded Convoy, an all-women medical unit that served in the Balkan Wars. Stobart's unit was one of the first to arrive in Serbia after the outbreak of war, and they quickly set up a hospital in Belgrade. Stobart and her nurses worked tirelessly to treat the wounded and dying, often under fire. The Flaming Sword of Mercy is Stobart's own account of her experiences in the Balkan Wars. It is a gripping and inspiring story of courage, compassion, and determination. Stobart's writing is vivid and unflinching, and she does not shy away from the horrors of war. However, she also writes about the hope and resilience of the human spirit. The Flaming Sword of Mercy is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of the Balkan Wars or the work of women in humanitarian aid. It is a powerful and moving testament to the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
