    Nightingales: The Extraordinary Upbringing and Curious Life of Miss Florence Nightingale by Gillian Gill Rating details Ratings 64 Reviews Florence Nightingale was for a time the most famous woman in Britainif not the world. We know her today primarily as a saintly character, perhaps as a heroic reformer of Britains health-care system/5(69).   "Miss Nightingale shows an ambitious struggling after power inimical to the true interests of the medical department," Sir John Hall, the chief British army medical officer in the Crimea, wrote to Author: Maev Kennedy.

The portrait depicts Florence Nightingale against a backdrop of the Crimean War, the conflict in which she and her team of volunteer nurses revolutionized sanitary conditions in military hospitals and saved many lives.   The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France—a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of Brand: St. Martin''s Publishing Group.

War Office.]. UAB - Libraries - The Life of Florence Nightingale. Florence Nightingale is famous as the “lady with the lamp” in the Crimean War, — There is a massive amount of literature on this work, but, as editor Lynn McDonald shows, it is often erroneous, and films and press reporting on it have been even less accurate.

At Miss Nightingale’s persistent entreaties the war office at home ordered the sanitary commissioners at Scutari to carry out at once sanitary reforms.

Then the death-rate rapidly declined until in June it had dropped to 2 per cent. The improved conditions at Scutari allowed Miss Nightingale in May to visit the hospitals at and near Balaclava.

Florence Nightingale rose to fame for nursing the sick and wounded during the Crimean War (–56). After the war, she might have taken a high-profile post as a hospital. ByFlorence Nightingale had transformed hospital care in the Crimean War—her next step was to use statistics to convince the British army and government of the need for widespread reform.

Today, we are used to seeing statistics presented in graphical form. Infographics are common in newspapers, magazines and online. The book would spark a total restructuring of the War Office’s administrative department, including the establishment of a Royal Commission for the Health of the Army in Nightingale.

The inscription on the reverse side read, “To Miss Florence Nightingale as a mark of esteem and gratitude for her devotion toward the queen’s brave soldiers from Victoria R. ” Fighter.

The Nightingale is a novel, written by Kristin Hannah and published in It tells the story of two sisters in France during World War II, and their struggle to survive and resist the German occupation of was inspired by the story of a Belgian woman, Andrée de Jongh, who helped downed Allied pilots to escape Nazi territory.

[citation needed] The book sold well, earning places on Author: Kristin Hannah. With the support of the War Office, Nightingale left England on 21 October to travel to the warzone. Evidence of the journey can be found in the passport registers held at The National Archives.

The register, dated 20 October, shows that “Miss F Nightingale” (passport number ) was given “gratis” passage to Constantinople. The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France–a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women.

A CLARIFICATION ON RUSSELL'S ROLE. Among some common misunderstandings about the Crimean War and Miss Florence Nightingale is the one about William Howard Russell and the Times of London newspaper.

It is said that Russell was the "first" war correspondent and that his story in the Times caused the public and private uproar over the lack of medical attention paid Crimean War troops. “Miss Nightingale shows an ambitious struggling after power inimical to the true interests of the medical department,” John Hall, the chief British Army medical officer in Crimea, wrote.

Mary Jane Seacole (née Grant; 23 November – 14 May ) was a British-Jamaican business woman and nurse who set up the "British Hotel" behind the lines during the Crimean described this as "a mess-table and comfortable quarters for sick and convalescent officers", and provided succour for wounded servicemen on the battlefield.

Coming from a tradition of Jamaican and West Known for: Assistance to sick and wounded military. Nightingales at War is the fifth in the Nightingales series, I have previously reviewed the first four books here on Random Things; The Nightingale Girls (September ); The Nightingale Sisters (April ); The Nightingale Nurses (November ) and Nightingales on Call (April )/5.

Miss Nightingale is set in London during A smoky, underground cabaret club opens in the heart of a war-torn city. As a saucy new singer is thrust into the spotlight, two men struggle to bring their love out of the shadows. A deeply touching and raucously funny tale of prejudice, passion and debauchery during the dark days of World War Two.

Miss Nightingale - The Musical is a musical written by writer and composer Matthew Bugg and produced by his own production company, Mister Bugg Presents.

The musical is set in London and tells the story of nurse turned singer, Maggie Brown, her transformation into the eponymous 'Miss Nightingale' and relationship with the three men in her life and their relationships with one : Matthew Bugg.

The Vaults is a multi-disciplinary space located in the underground world of Waterloo station. B efore Florence Nightingale, nursing was the domain of religious orders or women too disreputable to be domestic servants.

The Crimean war, inwas embarked on blithely by the British. Matthew Bugg's acclaimed WW2 musical Miss Nightingale may just have found its spiritual home at The Vaults. Entering the warren of dimly lit underground tunnels, we're handed a chocolate bar and a programme designed to look like a ration book before stepping into the auditorium, which could very easily be an air raid shelter.
