Publishers Description: Wartime Nurse recounts the amazing exploits of nurses working in battle zones spanning wars from the Crimea to Koreayears when such nurses struggled for official recognition. Florence Nightingales nurses defied male prejudice and the conventions of the age by caring for soldiers in hospitals seething with cholera. Reports from the South African wars of 1899-1902 told of nurses calmly dressing wounds in a street while shells exploded around them. In the First World War, over 10,000 nurses and 23,000 women of Voluntary Aid Detachments served not only in France but world-wide, from the ice-bound port of Archangel to the oven-like heat of Mesopotamia.
