When the First World War broke out in 1914 dozens of women doctors offered their services – but they were told by the British Army to “Go home and sit still”. Flora Murray and Louisa Garrett Anderson refused to sit still. Both qualified doctors and suffragettes – and also life partners – they took a unit of women doctors and nurses to Paris. They ran a hospital there so successfully that the army invited them to open a second hospital in Boulogne and then – in May 1915 – to run a major military hospital in the heart of London.

Wendy Moore is a freelance journalist and author of five books on medical and social history. ENDELL STREET was a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week. It is published in the US as NO MAN’S LAND.
