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 60s, 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. --Provided by publisher.

Fascinating memoir of the author's childhood in Sussex, and her trip back to investigate the story of the 'Guinea Pigs' and the dedicated nurses who worked with them. The writing style is very interesting, combining the author's journey of self-discovery with her research into a period during the Second World War which had far-reaching effects on both herself, the burns victims, and the nurses.
