Daylesford Book Club

Book for October 2019

The Winter Soldier


Vienna 1914.  Lucius is a twenty-two-year-old medical student when World War 1 explodes across Europe. Enraptured by romantic tales of battlefield surgery, he enlists, only to find himself posted to a small field-hospital ravaged by typhus.  Supplies have all but run out, the other doctors have fled, and only a single nurse remains, from whom he must learn a brutal, makeshift medicine.

From the gilded ballrooms of Imperial Vienna to the frozen forests of the Eastern Front, The Winter Soldier is the story of finding love n the sweeping tides of history, and of the mistakes we make and the precious opportunities to atone
