Corpus reviews With Them Through Hell


Sue Wootton at Corpus reviews Anna Rogers’ With Them Through Hell.

With Them Through Hell: New Zealand Medical Services in the First World War is a very handsome hardback production. The bright red lettering of the title leaps off the cover. The book is permeated with this colour — the colour of blood, and also of the Red Cross. It has a crimson spine, a crimson bookmark ribbon, and its chapters are separated by crimson page dividers. The design is crisp and clean, and the many illustrations are well-chosen and clearly reproduced. This is a book that will grace any bookshelf or coffee table but don’t expect anyone who casually picks it up to merely flick through and then put it down. This book draws you in and doesn’t let you leave unchanged.’
