Synopsis
2014 Best Selling History Book

From the trenches of the Western Front to the ricefields and jungles of South-east Asia, Australian women have served as doctors and medical specialists from World War I until the present day.

This book tells their stories of adventure, courage, sacrifice and determination as they fought to serve their country … and won.

Critique
“An uplifting account of service beyond self, of the service of individual courageous doctors who experienced challenges and met these beyond the normal call of duty … and account of proud women doing their duty individually as members, male or female, of what some call ‘the caring corps of combat’.”
– Major General John Pearn (former Surgeon-General, Australian Defence Force)

“Not For Glory has done a magnificent job in reminding us that bravery, skill and compassion exist not only in the history books, but also in the current generation of female medical professionals who serve Australia here at home and wherever our soldiers deploy.”
– Lieutenant General David Morrison (Chief of Army, Australian Defence Force)

The collaboration of these two outstanding women has resulted in a well researched and well written book.
Sandra Lambkin, REVEILLE

I thought I knew about the history of women in medicine until I read Not for Glory, the compelling stories of Australian women doctors who served our country on the battlefields of war. The battles faced by these remarkable pioneers were not just nation against nation. They also had to battle the dominant medical and military hierarchies of their time for professional recognition, respect and acceptance. Their inspirational stories exemplify the very best of feminist and humanist principles. Those of us who have had the privilege of being leaders in our profession owe so much to the medical women in our history who defied convention, forming the vanguard for those of us who followed.
Professor Kerryn Phelps AM,
President, Australian Medical Association 2000-2003

More Australians at war – but women, not men; healers not killers – stories rarely heard but well told and needing to be heard.
Professor Peter Stanley,
Australian Centre for the Study of Armed Conflict and Society, University of New South Wales, Canberra

At the outbreak of the First World War, female medical practitioners rush to volunteer in the Australian Army. They rudely were dismissed as ‘too illogical or hysterical for service’. Despite this rebuttal, Australian women went on to serve with British units in theatres of war as diverse as France, Serbia and the Middle East. Their heroism and devotion to duty, and their struggle against a male dominated military hierarchy is one of the untold stories of Anzac. In a remarkable book spanning a century of service, Susan Neuhaus and Sharon Mascall-Dare capture the lives of women too long forgotten to history. Detailed archival research, searching oral history, and vibrant participant observation shape a narrative that is bound to captivate the reader and throw new light on women’s experience of war. This long overdue book is an immensely valuable contribution to the Anzac Centenary.
Professor Bruce Scates,
Chair of the Military and Cultural History Panel, Anzac Centenary Advisory Board
