Florence Nightingale is one of the most famous women in history, whose contribution to helping the injured soldiers during the Crimean War is a wonderful example of how just one person can make a difference to the course of history.
Following Florence's journey to the hospital at Scutari and the work that she did there, the book also looks at how the improvements Florence made inform how hospitals treat hygiene and infections in hospitals today.
