Olive Dent was an elementary school teacher, who volunteered as a nurse in World War I, and served in a tented hospital in Northern France for two years. As well as writing this memoir, originally published as A V.A.D. in France, she also contributed regularly to the Daily Mail and the Lady. She died in 1930, aged 45, in the care of a Marie Curie cancer hospital in London, where there was a ward named after her.
