The only woman to serve as a soldier in the First World War, the Englishwoman Flora Sandes became a hero and media sensation when she fought for the Serbian Army and pursued a distinguished career in its ranks as officer. This account charts her incredible story, from her tomboyish childhood in genteel Victorian England, her mission to Serbia as a Red Cross volunteer and subsequent military enrolment, her celebrity lecture tours of Europe, her marriage to a fellow officer and her survival of a Gestapo prison during the Second World War to her final years in Suffolk. A fascinating character of her times and an inspiration to women the world over, Flora Sandes is brought to life and restored to her rightful place in history by this authorized biography - compiled with the help of her family, and using hitherto unused private papers and photographs.

Review:
Meticulous biography... Sandes did not fight for ideology, but for excitement and camaraderie. --Ben Macintyre, The Times

Miller's prose is clear, and she writes with passion about her subject, injecting a Saturday morning picture-house feel to Flora's exploits on the Serbian front line. It is this that makes the book a bracing narrative, appealing to the general reader... endnotes, and a thorough bibliography of primary and secondary sources, also give the book academic substance. --The Scotsman

"This is an inspiring story, meticulously researched and referenced, of courageous women whose presence made a difference to an embattled and courageous country." --The Scots Magazine
About the Author:
English-born (1968), largely Canadian-educated, Louise Miller has Master's degrees in politics and law. A Fine Brother is her first book. She has been recently involved with a documentary on the subject of the work of British women in Serbia during the First World War, which was shown in February 2011 on Serbia's RTS 2 to an audience of one million.
