As the Japanese swept into Rangoon in 1942, Nurse Angela Bolton arrived in India to find the real enemy was the mosquito. The army nurse's job was a neverending battle against malaria, dysentery, scrub typhus and, of course, the oppressive heat. But she had behind her a tradition of skill, courage and dedication stretching back to Florence Nightingale and the filthy, fever-ridden hospitals of the Crimea. Despite the acute shortage of vital medical officers, nurses and equipment, the stick and wounded were tended - British, Indian and even Japanese alike. And there were good times too - dances in the officers' mess and planters' clubs, moonlit nights on the Brahmaputra River, Guy Fawkes night aboard a hospital boat. And the rapture and anguish of a bittersweet first love.
