The execution of British matron Edith Cavell by occupying German forces was portrayed by the allies as one of the key atrocities of the Great War. This book recovers and interprets the worldwide reaction to Cavell's death, exploring its contextual relationship within imperial and international history, as well women's history and gender history.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A fascinating study of the memorialisation of nurse Edith Cavell within both Britain and its Empire, this book provides a novel route into exploring memories of the Great War, questions of gender and commemoration and the relationship between metropole and white settler colonies in the interwar period." - Clare Midgley, Sheffield Hallam University, UK and President of the International Federation for Research in Women's History
