No Place for Ladies

THE UNTOLD STORY OF WOMEN IN THE CRIMEAN WAR

Aurum Press, 2007


Poignant and inspirational, well researched yet thoroughly readable, No Place for Ladies is the untold story of war, love, death - and the brave women, from nurses to countesses, who went out to the Crimea.

Simon Sebag Montefiore


Fascinating...the author has made excellent use of [the diaries and letters].Rappaport weaves their stories into the text without sentimentality; the facts speak for themselves.

Alan Mallinson, Times


Helen Rappaport in her wide-ranging and informative book...brings together material from

many scattered sources to provide a comprehensive and fascinating picture of the varied roles [women] undertook...she cuts through the myth and soft-focus hagiography that has built up around...Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.

Christine Kelly, Literary Review


No Place for Ladies tells the haunting stories of mostly forgotten women, drawing the reader into lives of extreme hardship, devotion and devastation. Helen Rappaport paints

a vivid picture...[and] addresses the voyeurism of wars...

Andrea Wulf, Guardian


An amazing tale, beautifully told, about all the women who weren’t Florence Nightingale.

Janie Hampton, Élan magazine
