Subject content: Elsie Inglis (1864-1917) was a Scottish doctor and suffragist. " @the fame of Elsie Inglis will shine in history,' wrote Winston Churchill after her death in 1917. Daughter of a distinguished Indian administrator, she became a doctor wwhen only a determined and unconventional girl could do this work; and she was perhaps the only 'Votes for Women' campaigner whom that astute politician Churchill genuinely admired, for her 'constitutional' methods were totally different from the tiresome and noisy Pankhursts'. Moreover when war came in 1914 she founded a hospital organization for women to serve the country, and showed herself as resourceful, courageous and impenitently patriotic as Churchill himself. @Shadow of Swords' is the definite biography of this remarkable woman who by her courage under fire and as a prisoner of war won an imperishably glorious name. Her greatest achievement, getting an army of 13,000 men out of Russia in defiance of Trotsky and the Bolsheviks, kept secret for security reasons, could only be correctly assessed when the 1917 records became available."
