Cover to Cover Ep 04 with Liz Byrski23 Jul 15
In this interview with Cover to Cover host, Meri Fatin, Liz Bryski discusses her latest book, In Love and War, Nursing Heroes.
In the aftermath of the Battle of Britain, airmen filled a small town where pioneering plastic surgeon Archibald McIndoe established revolutionary surgical and therapeutic treatments.
For the child Liz Byrski, growing up in East Grinstead, the burnt faces of these airmen filled her nightmares.
In her late sixties, Liz returned to make peace with her memories and to speak not only with the survivors – known as the Guinea Pig Club – but with the nurses who played a vital and unorthodox role in their treatment, sometimes at a significant personal cost.
