This book examines the development and evolution of surgical practice against the overwhelming risk of death due to disease during the wars in the 19th Century. It reviews three major conflicts during this time: the Peninsular War, the Crimean War and the Boer War, as well as minor wars fought by the British Empire in the intervening years.
War Surgery 1914-18 contributes greatly to our understanding of the surgery of warfare. Surgeons working in Casualty Clearing Stations during the years 1914-1918 laid the foundations for modern war surgery as practised today in Afghanistan and elsewhere.
