A Nurse's Story by Delia Battles Lewis

General Nonfiction

A Nurse's Story: Medical Missionary in Korea and Siberia, 1915-1920 is the true story of Delia Battles, who left Ohio to train as a nurse in New York City and then work as a medical missionary in Haeju, Korea, training native nurses at the mission hospital. Her service was interrupted by WWI, when she was called to be part of a Red Cross unit on the Eastern Front. At the end of the war, she returned to Korea to work in a hospital in Seoul, just in time to witness the first stirrings of the Korean Independence movement. “What is remarkable to the reader is how much of her tale of war, refugees, foreign occupation, and finally, nursing tradition and education, still rings true today.”-Denise M.
