A month after war broke out in 1914, doctors Flora Murray and Louisa Garrett Anderson set out for Paris, where they opened a hospital in a luxury hotel and treated casualties plucked from France's battlefields. Prior to the Great War, female doctors were restricted to treating women and children, but Murray and Anderson's work was so successful that the British Army asked them to run a hospital in the heart of London.
