Summary

Summary

This book is the record of the Life and achievements of a remarkable woman: Baroness Ryder of Warsaw. At the beginning of World War II, Sue Ryder left school and volunteered to join Britain's First Aid Nursing Yeomanry. She then served with the secret Special Operations Executive, created by Winston Churchill to coordinate Resistance activities in German-occupied Europe. She was attached to the Polish section of the SOE, and what she witnessed from that time to the end of the war left her not only with an enduring love of the Polish people but also with a determination to relieve the suffering of a devastated continent.

In 1953 she formed the Sue Ryder Foundation, to provide homes and care teams for the sick and disabled in any part of the world where there is a clear need and where the opportunity exists. This autobiography is a fitting testament to the compassion and indomitable reserve of its founder.
