This history of the QARANC records the role that nursing has played in the army from the 17th century until the present day. The author describes the rise of the early army nursing organizations and the genesis of QARANC. Her picture of Florence Nightingale is revealing in that it puts aside the conventional myths and shows us a woman of powerful influence and fierce determination who provided the administrative impetus for the formal advancement of army nursing.
