Publishers Description: A wonderful memoir about the scars of war, Byrski writes of the physical scars of burned airman and the emotional toll taken on women tasked with nursing them. In the aftermath of the Battle of Britain, airmen filled a small Sussex town where pioneering plastic surgeon Archibald McIndoe established revolutionary surgical and therapeutic treatments. For the child Liz Byrski, 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.
