WHO WAS THE LADY WITH THE LAMP?
WHERE DID THE LEGEND COME FROM?
AND WHAT WAS THE TRUTH?
From her battles with family, doctors, nurses and the British establishment to her ceaseless work on behalf of the sick, the wounded and the dying, Florence Nightingale, more perhaps than any other modern historical figure, has been misrepresented by history. Mark Bostridge's enthralling Florence Nightingale sets the record straight about the most passionate and determined woman of the Victorian age.
