From Library Journal:

Although this is being published as a tie-in to a forthcoming movie, this 1991 volume has true scholarly merit. Hemingway met and fell in love with nurse Kurowsky in the Red Cross hospital in Milan while recuperating from wounds inflicted at the Italian front during World War I. Their alleged affair was the basis for A Farewell to Arms-she appeared as Catherine Barkley. She eventually jilted him, and he later killed her in his novel. Included here are sections from her private diary from the time Hemingway was her patient as well as her letters to him. A remembrance by fellow patient Villard and an essay by Hemingway scholar Nagel add to the proceedings. This volume offers fascinating firsthand information on one of the most important events in Hemingway's life and has a place in all serious American literature collections.

From Publishers Weekly:

This collaborative volume, which sorts out the facts behind A Farewell to Arms , contains the "emotionally restricted" diary of von Kurowsky, the American nurse with whom Hemingway fell in love in a Milan hospital in 1918; her effusively affectionate and concerned 52 letters to him; 14 of his idealistic letters to his family, which disclose a good deal about his forceful, exuberant personality; and hospital reminiscences by Villard, one of his fellow-patients. In a detailed study, Nagel, English professor at Northeastern, discusses how Hemingway's romanticized Farewell differs from his actual experiences. The material assembled here, most of which has not been previously published, contradicts the assertions of Hemingway's major biographers about his military service and war wounds.
