“In Love and War is a remarkable and moving story: the survival and quality of life that we can achieve today for burns patients is in part due to the energy and sheer hard work of Archibald McIndoe and his team of specialists and nurses”- Professor Fiona Wood, AM.

 

“In Love and War is a remarkable and moving story: the survival and quality of life that we can achieve today for burns patients is in part due to the energy and sheer hard work of Archibald McIndoe and his team of specialists and nurses”- Professor Fiona Wood, AM. 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.
