This book examines the work that nurses of many differing nations undertook during the Crimean War, the Boer War, the Spanish Civil War, both World Wars and the Korean War. It makes an excellent and timely contribution to the growing discipline of nursing wartime work. In its exploration of multiple nursing roles during the wars, it considers the responsiveness of nursing work, as crisis scenarios gave rise to improvisation and the – sometimes quite dramatic – breaking of practice boundaries. The originality of the text lies not only in the breadth of wartime practices considered, but also the international scope of both the contributors and the nurses they consider. It will therefore appeal to academics and students in the history of nursing and war, nursing work and the history of medicine and war from across the globe.

As Madge arrived in Chittagong, she wondered how she would adapt to the ever present danger of invasion and to life in a military hospital. She spent long, exhausting hours nursing the badly-injured young soldiers in her care, but found strength in her friendship with the other nurses. And then, one day, she met Captain Basil Lambert . . . Could their fragile, new found romance survive the terrifying final months of war?

Florence Nightingale defied male prejudice and the conventions of the time by caring for soldiers in hospitals seething with cholera and "awash with sewage". During the Boer War, nurses were calmly dressing wounds in the shell-bombed streets of South Africa. In the First World War, tens of thousands served world-wide, battling away in tented hospitals from the icy conditions of Archangel to the heat of Mesopotamia. By the time of the Second World War, the Forces finally conceded that there was a place for military nurses close to the battlefield itself and exactly one century after proving themselves in Crimea, wartime nurses were officially in action.

The inspiring nursing sisters worked in the most dangerous places of action during World War Two. They encountered death and disease on an unprecedented scale, suffered harsh imprisonment by the Japanese, and were bombed while onboard hospital ships and trains. But wherever they found themselves, the sisters continued to carry out their duties with professionalism and a plucky determination. This storybook was a good look at Army Nursing. Those women were amazing and prove that women are just as tough as men when the need arises.
