Notes on Nursing: What it is, and what it is not
Notes on Nursing: What it is, and what it is not

“My heart always sinks within me when I hear the good housewife, of every class, say ‘I assure you the bed is well slept in: and I can only hope it is not true. What? Is the bed already saturated with somebody else’s damp before my patient comes to exhale in it his own damp? Has it not had a single chance to be aired? No, not one. ‘It has been slept in every night.’”

From the best know work of Florence Nightingale, the originator and founder of modern nursing, comes a collection of notes that 0ayed an important part of the much needed revolution in the field of nursing. For the first time it was brought to the attention of those caring for the sick that their responsibilities covered not only the administration of medicines and the application of poultices, but the proper use of fresh air, light, warmth, cleanliness, quiet and the proper selection and administration of diet. Miss Nightingale is outspoken on these subjects as well as on other factors that she considers essential to good nursing. But, whatever her topic, her main concern and attention is always on the patient and his needs.

Crimea
Crimea

by Orlando Figes

The Crimean War one of the fiercest battles in Russia’s history, killing nearly a million men and completely redrawing the map of Europe. Pitting the Tsar’s empire against an alliance of Britain, France and the Ottoman Empire, it was the first conflict to use photography, the telegraph and newspapers; a war over territory, from the Balkans to the Persian Gulf; a war of religion, driven by a fervent, populist belief by the Tsar and his ministers that it was Russia’s task to rule all Orthodox Christians and control the Holy Land; it was the original ‘total war’.

Orlando Figes’ vivid new book reinterprets this extraordinary conflict. Bringing to life ordinary soldiers in snow-filled trenches, surgeons on the battlefield and the haunted, fanatical figure of Tsar Nicholas himself, Crimea tells the human story of a tragic war.

Edith Cavell
Edith Cavell

Edith Cavell was born in 1865, daughter of a Norfolk vicar, and shot in Brussels on 12 October 1915 by the Germans for sheltering British and French soldiers and helping them escape over the Belgian border.

Following a traditional village childhood in 19th century England, Edith worked as a governess in the UK and abroad, before training as a nurse in London in 1895. To Edith, nursing was a duty, a vocation, but above all a service. By 1907, she had travelled most of Europe and become matron of her own hospital in Belgium, where, under her leadership, a ramshackle hospital with few staff and little organization became a model nursing school.

When war broke out, Edith helped soldiers to escape the war by giving them jobs in her hospital, finding clothing and organizing safe passage into Holland. In all, she assisted over two hundred men. When her secret work was discovered, Edith was put on trial and sentenced to death by firing squad. She uttered only 130 words in her defence. A devout Christian, the evening before her death, she asked to be remembered as a nurse, not a hero or a martyr, and prayed to be fit for heaven. When news of Edith’s death reached Britain, army recruitment doubled.

Diana Souhami brings one of the Great War’s finest heroes to life in this biography of a hardworking, courageous and independent woman.

A Nurse at the Front: The First World War Diaries of Sister Edith Appleton
A Nurse at the Front: The First World War Diaries of Sister Edith Appleton

Edited by Ruth Cown and foreword by Michael Morpurgo.

Edith Appleton, known as Edie, was working as a professional nurse when war broke out in 1914. She immediately joined the military nursing services and spent the next four years treating dying and injured allied soldiers in France and Belgium, as they fought an entirely new type of war: one of horrendous living conditions, gas attacks and shell-shocked survivors.

A Nurse at the Front contains the fascinating diaries Edie kept of her experiences. Surrounded by death, she never lost her appreciation of life. Against the background of Ypres and the Somme, Edie writes unflinchingly, with clarity and even wit. We see the Great War through a new set of eyes in an acutely observed, courageous account of life on the front line of treacherous warfare.
