The Rose of No Man's Land by Jack Caddigan and James Alexander Brennan is a contemporary song written as a tribute to the Red Cross Nurses at the front lines of the First World War.


Different versions were published by Leo Feist Inc., Herman Darewski, Jack Mendelsohn Music and others in 1918 and 1945. The 1918 Feist edition is in a Patriotic format (four pages at 7 by 10 inches, to conserve paper) and has a French lyric (La rose sous les boulets) by Louis Delamarre. The 1945 Mendelsohn edition is only two pages and in English only. While the main published versions were for piano and voice, other versions were arranged for band, orchestra or male quartette. Mechanicals for the phonograph and player piano were also released.
