Life of Florence Nightingale

A recent BBC drama about Florence Nightingale, portrayed a fascinating insight into the life of a young woman who helped to create modern nursing. The drama was mainly based on the own writings and quotes of Florence Nightingale. It gave the drama a very personal perspective. She speaks and writes with great candour and honesty; she comes across as a remarkably determined and independent person.
“What the horrors of war are, no one can imagine. They are not wounds and blood and fever, spotted and low, or dysentery, chronic and acute, cold and heat and famine. They are intoxication, drunken brutality, demoralization and disorder on the part of the inferior... jealousies, meanness, indifference, selfish brutality on the part of the superior.”
- Florence Nightingale
