Abstract

"Georgina Pope (1862-1938) of Summerside, P.E.I., was a pioneer in Canadian military nursing, and the first Canadian nurse to receive the Royal Red Cross Medal, 1st Class. She is commemorated at the Valiants Memorial in Ottawa for her service in the Boer War and the First World War. This long overdue biography of 'Canada's Florence Nightingale' delivers powerful history on the risk and rewards of military nursing in the early 20th century."--
