Abstract

Florence Nightingale is famous as the 'lady with the lamp' in the Crimean War, 1854-56. This title reports on Nightingale's correspondence from the war hospitals and on the staggering amount of work she did post-war to ensure that the appalling death rate from disease (higher than that from bullets) did not recur.
