We’re very pleased to announce a new ebook edition of No Place for Ladies.
The pioneering work of Florence Nightingale has become legendary, but in this book Helen Rappaport champions the contribution of the women whose stories have gone largely untold – the nurses, cantinières and army wives who played a vital, but often overlooked, role in the theatres of war. Mary Seacole’s establishment of ‘The British Hotel’ near Balaclava supplied fatigued soldiers with much-needed comforts and medical attention, earning her the love and respect of many men, but no official recognition. This book gives her achievements the attention they deserve.
