Alan Brooksbank's foreword states: '..."War and the Woman" is written by an experienced Australian nurse for Australian women. It is frank, fearless and faces reality with a high resolve to make the best of unfortunate circumstances. It fills a great gap in our literature of essential information, and I commend it to Australian girls and women as a work well worthy of their thoughtful study in peace time and as an inseparable companion during a war...'
